Description:Make a big impact with this set of six posters! Using witty sarcasm, these posters creatively encourage healthy nutrition and activity inspired by MyPyramid. Each poster features one element of the food pyramid: fruits, veggies, grains, dairy, protein, and activity. A prominent warning label on each poster informs audiences about the benefits of eating healthy and exercise, while short tongue-in-cheek text elaborates on the benefits of a specific food or activity.
