Mini Dry Erase Menu Cards Make a Great Hands-On Activity for Students!

Here at Learning ZoneXpress we spend a lot of time talking with teachers and food and nutrition professionals. We listen to the needs and requests that can help make their jobs easier and that is how the idea of our Mini Dry Erase Menu Cards was born.

These nutrition education cards are simple, write on, wipe-off mini posters perfect for use as a nutrition learning tool in the classroom. They are ideal for individual use and offer a no mess, no fuss solution for a great hands-on activity for students. We offer two varieties and each nutrition education card comes in a set of ten and are 6” x 8”, coated with dry erase laminate.

The MyPlate Mini Dry Erase Menu Cards feature the USDA’s MyPlate logo and work great in a classroom setting for students to demonstrate how to plan and select healthy food choices from each of the food groups.

 

The 1 Terrific Tray™ Mini Dry Erase Menu Cards are perfect for display on serving lines in the cafeteria or use as a nutrition learning tool in the classroom. The card features 1 Terrific Tray™ to help identify daily menu options by food group along the lunch line.

We hope that our Mini Dry Erase Menu Cards offer you a great nutrition learning tool in your classroom or cafeteria!
