As part of the Old Schoolhouse Crew I was blessed to be able to review a wonderful nutritional education book for young children. This book is the essence of Delight-Led Learning!
This curriculum helps you teach little ones how to choose healthy foods, how to prepare some fun and delicious snacks, how to establish prevention based habits, and how they can participate in your family's natural lifestyle. The workbook is flexible and can be used for playgroups or as a fun family project. Children at this age learn best with active lessons, so this isn't a sit and read style picture book! It's a guide for parents that is packed with hands on activities that are perfect for little hands, but fun for all ages. Each of the 18 chapters includes a brief age appropriate lesson on the topic that parents can use to discuss with little ones while they are preparing for the projects, a featured project to teaches the lesson, additional instructions for parents to include these lessons in the family's lifestyle, and a selection of additional projects on the topic for additional fun. The book also contains sample schedules for preschoolers and convenient shopping lists for each project, complete with a resource guide and tips for parents and leaders. (From the Website)
If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time you know I both love to cook and love to talk about food and I am especially interested in nutrition as it pertains to making healthy kids and parents. This book takes the things I already love to do and discuss with my children and sets it up in a book with suggestions and recipes. I’ve had some of the best conversations with my little people regarding food thanks to this book!
The book is written in a very conversational tone and is easy to read and understand. If you know nothing or everything about nutrition and food you will still be able to get something from this handy book!
