I’m going back through all the resources I bookmarked online, and getting in all the books we had ordered to finish up nutrition. Also finishing up the multitude of St. Patrick’s Day pages I had printed. I don’t think I’d even gotten through half of them before we ran out of paper, so I’ll have to go back next year I guess and catch up. Then perhaps we’ll take a short spring break and get some ‘work’ done around the house before delving into GARDENING!
Here’s a few of the additional resources we used this week:
Movie: How did that get in my lunchbox? –– this is a great overview, only about 15 minutes for the whole thing and hits on a lot of topics would be a great introductory video.
USDA My Plate Food Groups Picture — this resource we used to talk about current governmental food suggestions and how they differed from how the pyramid was structured when we (as parents) grew up and how it’s different now– my 6 year old pointed out that there was NOT a sweets group on the plate, and I agreed and mentioned casually obesity, heart disease and cooking at home, things that are on the rise or decline because of healthy or unhealthy eating, trends in food, etc.
CDC Nutrition Game: this was a good game, easy enough to click on the different options and get information as to the food group and how much to eat of it daily. No scoring, just information.
List of Healthy Grains: this explained various grains and what they are used to make, we talked about different recipes using grains.
My Plate Worksheets: we did various worksheets out of this site about food groups, gardening, etc. I wish I’d seen these earlier, but good for any time.
