  1. Hi everyone! I'm looking for Fit for Life and Nutrition type curriculum, or a book, or an outline, or something for a small group of kids. Any ideas? Thanks.
  2. Hello, Is there a nutrition curriculum for early elementary age? Lots of pictures would be great. Or if anyone has a book suggestion that will work too. Thanks a bunch.
  3. If dd will continue her foreign languages track she will not only have an integrated math exam, but also an integrated science exam. Practically it means she will have a 12th grade exam with some chemistry, several biology and a lot,of physics topics. For Physics and Biology I found textbooks covering our examtopics, but Chemistry seems to be a little bit odd to me. She just has to learn about chemistry in relation to food and health in a human body. Anybody knows a texbook/course about that? She has to learn more about sacharids, lipids and the chemistry of food in your body then about chemical reactions. She will learn about polymeres though. In grade 9+10 we will cover IGCSE Chemistry so she will have some more general chemistry under her belt before this. Integrated science is a 3 hour subject in grade 11+ 12 and Chemistry seems to be the smaller part, so i am not looking for a yearfilling project. I hope anybody has soms suggestions.
  4. After posting about nutrition (the Swiss food pyramid thread) and trying to change my ways, it finally sank in that there was almost no way to get 7 - 9 serving of fruits and vegetables a day unless I also ate veggies at breakfast (and gave up coffee - for probably the 10th time).... Now I've been having onion, tomato and Swiss chard in some scrambled eggs....It's starting to get old yet nothing else seems to jump out as a possibility... So I thought I'd ask here - for people's ideas....I realize that this might not be the most popular breakfast option....:-) Hoping for some other ideas, Joan
  5. I am looking for a nutrition textbook that gives all the information (big words, definitions, processes) on an easier than college reading level. I haven't found a text that goes in depth enough (many are just too light for high school), or they're a college text. Suggestions?
  6. She will be using the revised, 2012 ABeka Health and I want to supplement with books which fall under these categories. Sex Education (we've had both formal & informal talks along with reading books-but nothing too recently) Nutrition/Fitness (we don't follow or agree with the USDA or their Food Pyramid.) Mental Health-Depression/Anxiety/Eating Disorders.....??? Emotional Health Spiritual Health- We are protestant Christians. She's read some Christian teen "Self Help/Non-Fiction" type books, so she's not utterly clueless but I will say that she's not a reader, so nothing too long or deep, please. ;) Oh-some books she read when she was 13-14, but would really benefit from reading them again. I'll try to post those particular books as soon as I can. :) Okay, here are books she's either read(not recently!) and/or we own..... Nobody Told Me B4UD8 the Truth about Guys The Truth About Dating, Love & Just Being Friends God's Will, God's Best for Your Life The Power of a Praying Teen A Young Woman After God's Heart The Anxiety Workbook for Teens My Anxious Mind TIA! ETA- Oops-I forgot to add her age! She's 16. :)
  7. Interesting. Summary of what we now need to eat at the end (even though I'm sure most of us knew this already). http://vimeo.com/67802064
  8. Dd12 seems a little off these days. Since she started her periods 6 months ago, they are coming very frequently (every 2-3 weeks.) If she gets a longer break, then she bleeds for 10 days. We are giving it another cycle or two to help her body regulate before we take her in for any testing (because I know the first thing they will tell me is to put her on the pill and I don't want to go that route.) I am worried that she might be a little anemic. She is athletic - a competitive rock climber - but she doesn't seem to have her usual endurance. I thought I might try to boost her b vitamins and iron intake. I would rather do this through foods. She is not a big red meat eater (will eat it when we serve it, but not her favorite.) She hasn't mastered swallowing pills bigger than a Zyrtec so pills may be out of the question. We try to eat a mostly whole foods diet. Any suggestions?
  9. Has anyone hear of this nutrition program?http://www.foodrenegade.com/realfoodnutritiontext/3-8.html It seems like just what I am looking for, but I want some reviews from people who have used it. I am concerned that the program goes too far down the "organics, holistic" food path for me, but I can't find any more info on it. I am certainly interested in the focus on real food, and I'm not opposed to organics, but I've read Nourishing Traditions and it might be a bit over the top for me. Becky
  10. We are starting a until on Nutrition/Health so I'm in need of some books and websites. I have Food and Nutrition for every kid by Janice Vancleave, Good Enough to Eat by Lizzy Rockwell, and The Vegetables We Eat By Gail Gibbons. I need things of both lower and upper elementary. Thanks!
  11. My child is 5 and in the 60% for height and 90% for weight. My doctor suggested that I have him have a whole grain, high protein, lower glycemic carb diet: Sugar Busters: 1. No juice...just roaring waters and sobe lifewater. 2. Dessert only 2 times a week. No candy or cookies. Use sugar free jello or sugar free pudding with cool whip. REAL FOOD? 3. Whole grains: popcorn, WG bread, brown rice, whole grain pasta, loads of high fiber fruits and veggies. 4. No white carbs Both of my kid's are on the heavier side. They have small waists but broader shoulders and legs. My 5 year old is involved in soccer and swim classes. I am a careful parent (1- 4 oz juice a day, whole grains with some white foods, dessert but not everyday). Have you ever experienced this? Did they thin out? What do you suggest?
  12. I just ran across this site this morning. You can basically type in any food from simple things like fruits and vegetables to entrees like lasagna and it will tell you all sorts of data. You can adjust serving size and even differentiate between some varieties of oranges, or between fruits peeled or unpeeled, baked or microwaved, etc.. I thought some of you would be really interested in this! http://nutritiondata.self.com/help/about ETA: Ooo, I just noticed it also has restaurant food data too.
  13. DS(13) and I saw a program on TV about areas of the world with the greatest longevity. (I think it was based on a National Geographic book called "Blue Zones" or something like that.) One of the things they suggested is drinking goats milk. DS asked me to get some and he loves it. Puts it on cereal, drinks it by the glass. DH, who typically needs to use soy milk because of lactose intolerance, has also started using the goats milk and is not having the digestive problems he had with cows milk. (He drank goats milk as a child in the middle east and is quite happy to have it on his hot and cold cereal.) So....the goat milk I can get is not organic, and is a dollar or two more expensive (per four litres - a little over a US gallon) than organic cows milk. Soy milk (Silk brand) is less expensive than both these options. Both types of real milk come from local dairies (I mean, within 100 km or so from Toronto). I just saw some local organic goat milk but it is $7 per litre!! No can do for the amount these two consume. So...what, if any, are the nutritional benefits of goats milk? It would seem, at least, to be more digestible than cows milk...why would that be?
