The metaphor of a balanced diet is used in literacy to describe the components of literacy instruction that are vital to growing readers and writers (NRP 2000). In a balanced literacy diet, the components work in tandem to give students multiple contexts to practice and transfer their understanding, knowledge, and skills. Similarly, the Math Diet provides an instructional framework to grow proficient mathematicians based on mathematics education research (NCTM 2014; NRC 2009). (See the more4U note at the end of the article for how to access a summary table of the Math Diet that is available online.) The Math Diet for students in kindergarten through fifth grade includes five components.
