Item # 271

Planning a well-balanced meal is child's play with this wooden set. Items from the five food groups--including watermelon, milk, cheese, fish, eggs, and much more--are crafted of solid wood and come with four wooden baskets for sorting and storage.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

  • Ask the child to identify each food item (other than condiments) and to categorize it by basic food group: meat, dairy, grain, or fruits and vegetables. Ask the child to place each food group in a different crate.
  • Have the child identify the colors of each food item, and sort the items by color among the four crates.
  • Help the child to assemble a balanced meal in each basket. Explain that each meal must have one item from each food group.
  • Visual memory skills: Place 3-4 ingredients in front of the child. Let the child study them before asking the child to close their eyes while you remove one piece. Ask the child which piece was removed. Gradually increase the number of ingredients.
Recommended Ages: 3+ years

Dimensions: 2.5" x 8.75" x 12.5" Packaged

Great, but could be better

I like this food set. I bought it for my son's play kitchen. The quality is great - just what you'd expect from Melissa and Doug. However, it would be awesome if the items were to scar instead of being the same size. I can't complain too much for $20, though! Lol! I do love the mix of foods - fruits, veggies, meat, and dairy / eggs. Each food group has a little wooden crate that all of the food fits in. It's nice to keep the foods organized, and also a fun game to sort the food into different food groups.
