If you are looking for something related to May’s Health and Fitness theme, check out the Nutrition belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program. A pack meeting with a cookout could incorporate the requirements for this belt loop.
Note that although the US government is now promoting “My Plate” instead of “My Pyramid”, the requirements still refer to My Pyramid.
Nutrition Belt Loop Requirements
Complete these three requirements:
- Make a poster of foods that are good for you. Share the poster with your den.
- Explain the difference between a fruit and a vegetable. Eat one of each.
- Help prepare and eat a healthy meal of foods that are included in a food pyramid. (With your parent’s or partner’s permission, see http://www.mypyramid.gov)
