pI am homeschooling our kids. I was wondering if anyone has come across a good nutrition course for kids? I have been looking for one but haven't found one. Dd is not eating right. She doesn't want to eat and is afraid to eat. She is getting better I just thought reading would be better than listening to mom!/p

Not yet. But when I was tutoring my 10 yr old nephew, I found lots of useful materials at a local shop for teachers. Hope you find something. If not, try a college basic nutrition book (Food Science or Home Economics Dept.) and make up simpler lessons from it.

In Ontario we have local Health Units. They have many great resources on health issues and have kits that you can borrow.

Ontario is the Province in Canada I live in. Here is the web site for my local Health Unit. Maybe you would have something similar in your State. [url="http://www.healthunit.ca/index.html"]http://www.healthunit.ca/index.html[/url]
Sorry you will have to cut and paste, I do not know how to make it a link.

I was doing a search on homeschooling and came across this site:
[url="http://www.healthy-start.com/"]http://www.healthy-start.com/[/url]
I'm not sure if they do pre-school only though.

Hi Connielynn ~
I haven't been to this site in such a long time so I missed this post of yours. If you are still searching for a nutrition course I know of one that might work. Go to Amazon in their book section and type in:
Healthy Foods Unit Study grade K-5
or:
Healthy Foods Unit Study grade 6-9
(actually I can't remember if I actually typed in the word "grade" or not. The exact
title is "Healthy Foods Unit Study: a Guide For Nutrition". There are two books, one for
younger kids and one for older kids. You'll need to type in the grade level because just "Healthy Foods Unit Study" will only bring you to the one for older kids).
These are both written by Leanne Ely. From
what I understand you will need the book
Healthy Foods by the same author to go along
with the unit studies. Leanne is a homeschooling mom and wrote these unit studies specifically for homeschoolers. I don't have the guides yet but I'm thinking of getting them. I homeschool two children:
daughter almost 10 and son age 7. My son is allergic to peanuts, nuts, eggs. I hope this
info will be helpful. Have a great day!

Thanks! Have you read these? I have wondered about them but had read (somewhere) that you needed to buy a lot of stuff at a health food store. I have have plenty of problems trying to buy 'natural' foods.
Do you read Leanne's newsletter? It is really good.

No, I have not read them. I was wondering
what the ingredients in most of the recipes
would be. Sometimes you look at a cookbook
and think you would never buy half of the stuff they want you to use. And considering
allergies....we'll it would be nice to browse
through it before buying. I have not read
Leanne's newsletter. Are you a FlyBaby?
That's how I heard about Leanne's cookbook
and unit studies...from FlyLady's website.

Hi Connielynn ~
Actually Leanne Ely doesn't have the Flylady
(or Flybaby) website but her book is sold
at that website (if that makes sense). If
you wonder what a Flylady and a Flybaby are,
check it out at [url="http://www.flylady.net"]http://www.flylady.net[/url]
You can sign up for free daily e-mail reminders for house cleaning and organization. Check it out! Believe me, it
really helps!! She helps you get out of
CHAOS (Can't Have Anybody Over Syndrome).
