The new year has just begun and many people are making resolutions to eat healthier. This is a great time to work in a healthy foods mini unit study.
Children learn by example, and this includes picking up bad habits. Unhealthy eating habits can be difficult to reverse.
Participating in this study as a family will encourage cooperation and discussion about changes.
The hard part is learning what a healthy diet should look like and how to implement it.
These pages offer an easy-to-follow diagram of the four basic food groups. Choosing the appropriate percentages from each group will help you create a balanced diet.
The worksheets are designed for younger students to learn about nutrition. They also offer practice in a few age-appropriate skills.
Counting, I-spy, sorting, and investigation activities will challenge your child’s current skills.
The content teaches which foods are nutrient-dense and which are treats to be enjoyed occasionally. Emphasis is placed on foods that are healthy.
It is good to teach children healthy eating habits early. This will help prepare them to make good choices later in life.
Find ways to share a heathy lifestyle with your kids alongside this healthy foods mini unit study.
