Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2
We’ll just start by saying this; Nutrition 101 was one of our absolute favorites to review this year! But before we get into the details, let’s learn a little about why this product came to be:
Growing Healthy Homes was established, “to educate and train families regarding God’s plan to optimum health as outlined in the Bible. We are wives, mothers, researchers and teachers dedicated to reaching homes with a message of hope and healing. Our product line includes family-centered and health-infused books/e-books, as well as educational materials for user of pure therapeutic-grade essential oils.”
Members of the TOS Crew were given copies of Nutrition 101: Choose Life! to use with their families. We could not be more amazed at how complete this study is! “Nutrition 101: Choose Life! is a three-in-one family nutrition and health program for all ages that presents the major body systems, how they function, their common health issues, the benefits of good food and the consequences of bad food.” The book is broken into these six units:
The Brain and Nervous System
- Digestion and Elimination
- Respiration and Olfactory
- Muscular and Skeletal Systems
- Cardiovascular and Immune Systems
- Endocrine System and Emotions
Please take a few moments to check out the book for yourself: Read an excerpt I think you’ll like what you see!
If that’s not enough, you can also watch this short informational video:
We are enjoying the hands on activities AND the recipes and plan to continue using this product! The first recipe we made was Guacamole…it’s good for your brain!
Now I was excited about this one, but I wasn’t sure how my picky eater would fare…no way he’s eating green mush, right? (See evidence to the contrary below!)
But it’s not all about the great recipes, there is also an incredible wealth of detailed scientific information on how nutrition affects the major systems in the human body. There are learning opportunities for younger students and secondary students, and if that’s not sufficient, there are lists of additional resources for further studies.
With 448 pages, this could easily be used for a full year’s curriculum for a very thorough Nutrition course. Additionally, if you are considering a Human Anatomy course, Nutrition 101 would be an excellent choice for a corresponding elective. Even for those who are not home educating their children, this would be a great reference to have around the house. We can ALL benefit from eating a healthier diet, right?
So in a nutshell, we….
Love it! 🙂
We are all looking forward to the lessons ahead….Who knows? By the time we get to the end, maybe my “picky eater” won’t be so picky any more!
