Health and Nutrition


I am amazed that often times when I research what and how I want to teach a certain subject to my children I end up becoming completely awed and passionate in the subject.

A few months ago I checked out a book from the library (suggested by a friend) in regards to what I want to teach my children about health and nutrition. This book "The Makers Diet" was the first book in my journey towards what and how to teach my children about health and nutrition. I encourage you to check out this book and begin your search!

As a part of our homeschool work we watched a movie called Food Inc.


Product Description

Food, Inc. lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing how our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the
livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. Food, Inc. reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it's produced and who we have become as a nation.

This movie is free right now on netflix instant watch! This should be watched by EVERYONE!!! After watching this movie I feel that my children's eyes were finally opened regarding fast food and why we don't eat it! They are passionate now about wanting to support our local farmers.
