administrator No comments

Early childhood nutrition lesson plans are a great opportunity to teach nutrition of children of early age about healthy living and taking care of our bodies. By instilling these values at an early age you can help develop children awareness to a healthy life style from the get go.

Healthy food is essential for healthy living. There are three elements necessary for a healthy life style: Food, exercise, rest. A balanced diet includes all food groups. Food is the fuel of our body. Different foods help different parts of our bodies. What is healthy eating, healthy foods?

What three elements are needed for a healthy life style? What are the four food groups and how do we have combinations of foods for each meal? How do we feel when we are hungry? With the help of some bananas, raisins, tangerines and anything else your heart fancies you can create edible food faces. This activity helps develop children’s creativity. Food Sorting Bring in flyers from your local grocery store. Let the children sort, cut out and glue the junk food in one group and the healthy food in the other group.
