“Picking” the Right Foods to Make the Right Decision
Elegir los Alimentos Correctos A Tomar la Decisión Correcta
By Emily Carlton

I decide to make healthy food choices at school and at home. Would you like to see if I pick the right foods throughout the day?

I decide to ask my parent to help me pack my lunch for school at least 3 times per week.

I decide to pick the fruit or vegetable as a side instead of fried foods if I have to buy lunch at school.

I decide to eat at least 1 cup of fruit each day at lunch.
