    When you're homeschooling it makes sense to study nutrition as a family, right? After all, you probably are all preparing and eating the same meals, and meal planning and shopping may even be cooperative efforts (if not, Mom is probably overworked!). Nutrition 101: Choose Life! was written for homeschooling families by a team of four moms (including two homeschool moms) to educate families about the relationship between our bodies and the food we eat. It's a unique book in that it is part textbook, part reference, and part cookbook. It's also a beautiful book, with glossy, full-color pages and good quality illustrations and photos. Finally, it's also biblically-based with plentiful Scripture references (KJV version) and a constant reminder that we are charged with maintaining the incredible body systems that God endowed us with. The course is divided into six main units, covering the major body systems: the brain and nervous system; digestive system; respiratory system and the senses; muscular and skeletal systems; cardiovascular and immune system; and the endocrine system and emotions. Units are further

    divided into four chapters, each designed to be completed in about a week. The authors provide a suggested daily schedule; however, you can easily adapt this to fit your needs. Each body system studied ties into a study of a particular nutrient or nutrients that you are encouraged to work into your diet, and to this end, quite a few healthy, whole-food recipes are included. The end of the book is also literally packed with a huge assortment of appendices (including lots of helpful charts!) and a thorough answer key for the activities. Each chapter includes text for reading, discussion questions, activity suggestions for elementary and secondary students, additional resources for further exploration, a "power recipe" and related activities. Typically, you'll first read about a body system, learn its function and all of the major parts, then continue on to learn about common health issues related to that body system and their causes. This is usually followed up by a closer look at a particular nutrient or group of nutrients that is beneficial to that particular body system.

    The "Power Recipe" (and associated list of activities) for each chapter is usually related to one of the featured beneficial nutrients. For instance, Unit 3, Chapter 4 is on the eyes. The first part of the chapter examines the parts of the eye and how the eye works. Then you'll read about eye sight issues including pink eye, sties, cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia and age-related macular degeneration. Next you examine nutrients that help maintain eye health including antioxidants, beta-carotene (to be converted to Vitamin A), lycopene, anthocyanosides, DHA, lutein, zeaxanthin and others. Several foods that have an adverse effect on eyesight, including trans fatty acids and processed foods are also discussed here. Discussion questions include how to protect your eyes, what foods are bad for your eyes, and applying what you've read about the eye to a particular Scripture. The activities are hands on and include spending time blindfolded (elementary level), finding a percentage of family members that wear glasses or contact lenses (elementary), explaining the difference between an ophthalmologist and optometrist (secondary) and discussion other meanings of vision (secondary). The "Power Recipe" focuses on carrots as an ingredient for a fresh carrot juice smoothie, and several carrot and juicing activity suggestions round out the recipe activities.

    The format of this course makes it extremely easy to use as a family. You can assign everyone to read (or read aloud) the text, and then get back together for the discussion questions. Discussion questions tend to be fairly easy if you've read or heard the chapter, so everyone would be able to participate here, maybe even over dinner! Depending on the ages of your students and the time allotted, you will probably want to pick and choose activities to assign. The featured "Power Recipe" would be easy to incorporate into a meal and the related activities may naturally fit into meal preparation.

    While this course is packed with excellent information, recipes and activities, there are a few items I should note. First of all, for all of the anatomical information and vocabulary covered, there are no tests or worksheets to reinforce the reading. The focus of the course is really to educate families and encourage them to change their eating habits, not provide easily graded assessments! However, this would be fairly easy to supplement if desired. The recipes and foods you are encouraged to try are healthy whole foods with low to no sugar, whole grains and possibly some ingredients you haven't met before. If you've never explored your local health food store, you'll find quite a few reasons to visit it now! You'll also find that there are some pretty strong opinions presented here, for example, when discussing toxins found in household cleaners and personal care products, or when examining specific nutrients or supplements-including extensive recommendations for Young Living Essential Oils. You will likely come across something here that you may disagree with, based on your own beliefs, or at least something that will make you stop and think (or perhaps do some further research on). Lastly, I did notice a couple of typos in perusing this resource, which was disappointing in such an otherwise appealing book. Whether you are looking for a nutrition course or trying to educate yourself or your family on why you should eat healthier foods, this is definitely a resource to consider. It's one that you'll want to leave on the shelf long after you've "finished" the course, as you'll be referring to it again and again! 448 pgs, pb. Jess/Deanne

    The activities presented in this book cover many aspects of health and nutrition in a very user-friendly manner. Each chapter begins with Teacher Notes that introduce the topic at hand, offer suggestions for extended lessons, and provide answers for the book's activities if applicable. Then, a wide variety of activities relating to that topic provide students with lots of practical, hands-on experience. For example, students are taught how to read the BMI table and are asked to examine food labels to understand special labeling such as low fat vs. reduced fat. Topics covered include but are not limited to the food pyramid, breakfast, whole grains, reading labels, exercise, BMI, fruits & vegetables, sugar, caffeine, fats, protein, snacking, and allergies.

    This book contains three principles that will change your diet and improve your health! The author, Dr. Rex Russell, used to suffer from many different health ailments and after trying everything in modern medicine, he felt God calling him back to the scriptures to learn what God says about eating, living a healthy lifestyle, and living longer. The first principle reads, "Eat only substances God created for food. Avoid what is not designed for food." The second principle is "As much as possible, eat foods as they were created – before they are changed or converted into something humans think might be better." The last principle states "Avoid food addictions. Don't let any food or drink become your God." Throughout this book Dr. Russell explores many different foods such as grains, meats, sugars, fat, beverages, fruits, and vegetables and how these three principles apply to these different food groups. He also addresses how our health can easily be affected by the lifestyles we keep that may be in direct opposition with God's Word. He also is a big advocate for fasting as a way to help us get over our food and substance addictions. Dr. Russell has obviously done his research and presents a lot of medical and scientific information that supports his findings in the scriptures. Take the Health IQ test to evaluate your own habits. I read this book cover to cover and was very inspired to make some big changes in my own diet. A great read for anyone who is looking to get healthy God's way! 6" x 9," 286 pgs, sc. ~ elise

    Every child should know how to properly clean and care for themselves. They should also develop good safety habits. "Healthy Me" starts with guidelines, activities and projects to teach kids to keep their teeth, bodies, and hands clean. Then it discusses healthy eating, teaching them which foods are good for them, with recipes for yummy treats and snacks for them to make. But staying healthy doesn't just mean just cleaning up properly and eating right; exercise and activities to stretch muscles is also needed. It tackles this subject with lots of fun ideas for keeping fit. The last part covers safety. It's important for kids to know their home information, play safety, and know where emergency exits are. Keep your child healthy - and safe.

    Not as in-depth as the title implies, this 80 page reproducible resource is nonetheless a good starting point for basic health education. The worksheets, games, and short vignettes provide a means for discussing topics that we often don't think about but significantly affect

    everyday life, such as personal hygiene, disease prevention, stress, and nutrition. Lesson plans include basic background information, procedures, and answers to any worksheets. While written for a classroom setting, they can easily be adapted for individual student use. Topics at the primary and intermediate levels overlap, but the lessons in each book are unique. Each level contains approximately 25 lessons. ~ Anh

    Learn what your body needs to be healthy and then prepare these delicious recipes to please not only those parts, but your taste buds too! This cookbook teaches children about the nutrients needed by individual parts of the human body as well as keeping the body as a whole healthy. After getting acquainted with the kitchen through the cooking tips and safety rules on tools, terms, and appliances at the beginning of the book, children are ready to start meeting the cravings of their body. The rest of the book is divided into two sections. In the first, chapters focus on separate body parts or systems such as the heart, blood, muscles, bones, teeth, nerves, digestive system, and hair, teeth and nails. Each of these pieces of the body requires different nutrients and vitamins to stay in good shape. Each chapter in this section begins with an explanation of that body part, discussing the features of the part including how it works and what it needs to work well. Following this interesting introduction is a fun activity or experiment that further explores that amazing body part. The rest of each chapter holds 4-6 scrumptious recipes containing the nutrients important for that part of the body. The recipes, marked from 1-3 based on difficulty, list the time and tools needed for preparation in addition to the needed ingredients and clear directions. The chapters in part two follow the same format but focus on the body as a whole, concentrating on the food pyramid, energy and exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and fruits and vegetables. Again, each of these sections holds an informative description, fun exercise, and easy, tasty recipes. Appendices hold the nutrient content of the recipes, a guide to food labels, and tips on what is safe to eat. 184 pgs. ~ Steph
