Planning Meals
Do you think it would be great to have a hamburger, French

fries, and soda for every meal? You�d soon get bored with it, and
a diet like that wouldn�t do your body any good.

To stay healthy, you need a balanced diet and a variety of
foods. When you help an adult in your family plan meals for
requirement 11, look at the Food Guide Pyramid on page 249
and the section on meal planning, pages 248�256 (Fitness activ-
ity badge). That will tell you about a balanced diet and give you
ideas for a variety of foods to choose for your plan.

Shopping for Food
Before you go to the store for food, make a list of the items

you�ll need for the meals you�ve planned. This is very important.
If you just grab off the shelves the things that look good, you
may not have what you need for complete meals. You also need
to look for ways to save money on your purchases.

It�s a good idea to check the store ads in the newspaper
before you shop. Often they will have �specials� that can save
you money. An adult member of your family can help you decide
whether they are good buys.

In the store, remember
to use your list. Ask the
adult family member who
is with you to help you
compare prices. If an 8-
ounce can of tomato sauce
is 59 cents and a 15-ounce
can is 89 cents, which is
the better buy? See if you
can figure it out. Smart
shoppers compare prices.

Price isn�t everything,
though. Your family may
like one brand best, even
if it costs more.

Preparing Meals
Have an adult member of your family with you when you

prepare meals. He or she can help if you don�t understand the
cookbook recipe or the directions on a box.

For requirement 11, you�ll help with at least three meals. Will
they be three different breakfasts? Or a breakfast, a lunch, and
a dinner?

Getting a meal ready to eat shouldn�t be difficult. Maybe you
already prepare your own breakfast cereal. But this requirement
asks you to help prepare three meals for the whole family. So
you might be cooking hot cereal and adding chopped apple to
it, or mixing up pancakes to serve with blueberries. Don�t forget
the other items on your menu plan, like milk and fruit juice.

Lunch can be easy, especially when you know exactly what to
get ready. Washing fruit and putting it in a bowl on the table can
take just a few minutes. If you get out all the ingredients for the
family�s favorite sandwiches before you start, you can put them
together quickly.

Dinner may take more planning. Since some foods take lon-
ger to cook than others, ask an adult to help you decide when
to start cooking each dish so everything is ready at about the
