– [Announcer] This module is sponsored by the Children’s Services
Council of Broward County. (upbeat pop music) – Today we’re at Whole Foods to find out about healthy
foods and a balanced diet. Let’s go. Hi.
– Hi! – I’m Penny.
– Hi Penny. – And these are the KidVision VPK kids and we’re here to find out
about the USDA food plate. – Awesome, I’m Vanessa,
welcome to Whole Foods Market. I’ve got a shopping cart. Why don’t we go find some
healthy items for our plate? – Going shopping! Here we go, here we go. Where are we? – We are in the produce department. So, here we are with all of our fruits. – How do we know we’re
making healthy food choices? – Well, that’s a good question. When half of our plate
is fruits and vegetables, we know we’ve made good choices. We want to make sure that we’re getting all the colors of the
rainbow on that plate. Take a peak around and see what fruits we have that make the color of the rainbow. – What color is this? – [Both Children] Orange. – Orange, and what color are the grapes? – Green. – [Penny] Green! – [Vanessa] And how about that? – What are these?
– Red. – Red strawberries. So, this is like the
colors of the rainbow. If you eat the colors of
the rainbow every day, you’ll be nice and healthy and you’ll be making healthy food choices. Should we bring some of this,
put it in our shopping cart? Yes, which one would you like? Ah, I guess we’re gonna take some oranges, oh, nice oranges. And we need the green grapes, red strawberries. (upbeat pop music) Should we go from here to the vegetables? – Absolutely.
– Okay. (upbeat pop music) – So, vegetables come
in pretty colors, too. Look at the orange on these carrots. Would you like to take one? Let’s see how if we can
tell how fresh they are. – And look at these nice, red radishes. Those are nice, right? Yeah, let’s put those in. So, fresh is best, right? – Absolutely. – And how can you tell if something is fresh and ready to eat? – So, we want to look at it, we’re gonna use our senses, right? So, first, we’ll look at
it, does it look fresh? – Yes. – It’s got the nice, fresh, green tops. And we can smell it. Smells like a carrot. – Oh, it does smell like a carrot. – We want to make sure when we snap it, that it’s nice and crisp. That will tell us that it’s fresh. Are you ready? – Did you hear it? – Ah!
– Ah, I heard mine too! – Mine too. – And finally, we can taste it. – [All] Mm. – These are fresh. – They are fresh, right from the garden. – That’s terrific. Should we put these in our shopping cart? (upbeat pop music) So, we did fruits, we did vegetables, and now we’re going to the dairy aisle. – Okay, let’s go! Here we are. We can see butter and milk. These are dairy items. – That’s great. Wow, I see there’s
different kinds of milk. Could you read us the labels? – Sure, so we have whole milk, two percent reduced fat milk, one percent low fat milk, and skim milk, which is fat free. – Which milk to you like best? – Whole milk.
(cow mooing) – You like whole milk? Good, so let’s put that in our cart. Good, that’s great. So, let’s keep going
along the dairy aisle. (upbeat pop music) There’s all kinds of
things in the dairy aisle. Look, there’s yogurt. – Cottage cheese, cream cheese. – Look, there’s american
cheese, all kinds of cheese. Oh, and I see ahead of
us another food group, the protein group. – So, let’s head on over
to the seafood counter. – [Penny] Excellent. (upbeat pop music) – Protein makes up a quarter of our plate. Fish is one type of protein. Beans, meat, eggs and nuts, those are other types of protein. – Protein is weighed by the
pound, it’s sold by the pound. – It is. So, we can look and see
how much the fish weigh, how much do the shrimp weigh. Let’s see, what do you think they weigh? Let’s check it out. – Let’s see, let’s see
if they’ll weigh a fish. – Wow!
– I wanna eat– – That’s a big fish. Let’s see how much it weighs. It’s 1.67 pounds. I don’t think that we
need that much fish today, so why don’t we pick up a smaller, we’ll pick up a shrimp
platter for our lunch. – That’s a good source of protein. What other proteins do we have here? – There’s so many. So many from the sea, lobster,
shrimp, crab and scallops. There’s also different types of meat. We have lamb, chicken, turkey, those are all sources of protein, as well. (upbeat pop music) Let’s head over to the grains
so we can complete our plate. – It smells like fresh bread. – So, here we are. We’re gonna pick up the
last item for our plate, which is grains. Bread can be made from many
different types of grains like wheat, there’s rye, we have sourdough breads
and cereal breads, we even have breads made
from quinoa and rice. – So, grains can be many things. It could be rice and cereals and breads. So, grains are part of our food plate. (upbeat pop music) Do you want to grab a bread? Now let’s make sure we
have all the food groups. – [Vanessa] So, we have our grains. – [Penny] We have grains. – [Vanessa] We have our vegetables. – [Penny] Vegetables. – [Female Child] Protein! – [Vanessa] Our protein, wonderful. And our dairy and our fruits. – And if we eat all five
food groups every day, we’re gonna have a
balanced, nutritious diet. And it will be a rainbow
of different colors. And what’s at the end of the rainbow? – [Both Children] A pot of gold! – Gold, and if you eat
the rainbow every day, what is that pot of gold? – [All] Healthy body! – So you want to make sure you eat lots of different types of foods and all of the food groups every day. – Like carrots. – Like carrots, that’s wonderful. Thank you so much. – You’re so welcome. – We’re gonna check out, say goodbye. – Well, thanks for shopping today. I’ll see you again soon in the aisles. – You will. Thank you for showing us Whole Foods. – You’re very welcome. (upbeat pop music)
