Berrien County Youth Fair teaching kids about nutrition and physical activity


The Berrien County Youth Fair with the Michigan State extension office were teaching kids about nutrition and physical activity on Tuesday.  There was a free game, set up inside the agriculture building, teaching kids about the My Plate program.  Kids were asked about what they like to eat, and were given bean bags to throw into buckets representing the My Plate nutrition chart.

Michigan State University Extension Educator Zelda Felix-Mottley says the Youth Fair is a great place to get kids thinking about what they eat.  "If you sow good nutrition with physical activity,"  Felix-Mottley said, "then you can get healthier, because we focus on health and healthy weight."

The MSU extension office does this program once a year on Kids Day at The Berrien County Youth Fair.  For more information on the MyPlate program visit
