TOS Review: Growing Healthy Homes Nutrition 101


I was so excited when I saw Growing Healthy Homes in our queue for review. I have been slowly changing the way I feed my family and this was a great boost in making even more changes.  

Growing Healthy Homes Nutrition 101 is a 3-in-1 health and wellness program, biology curriculum and cookbook designed for the homeschool family. Don't let the name fool you. This is not your ordinary health class. It is comprised of six Biblically-based units that teach nutrition, biology and life wellness through hands-on activities, amazing full color diagrams and scrumptious recipes.

On a personal note, my boys are finally getting of the age that they are asking about Music Man's challenges and health issues. Nutrition 101 not only tells you "the what" of nutrition but also about why we need to feed our bodies certain things. The different systems of the body are explained in their own chapter. It has been a challenge for me to explain some of Music Man's issues to him and his brother but with this complete curriculum, he's gotten biology and health/wellness all wrapped into one! We had no idea that bananas were bad for the respiratory tract and that is his absolute favorite food! Music Man is also beginning to understand more about how the body systems work together and how when one system is not healthy, it affects the whole body.

Another perk for me personally, is that it is one thing for Mama to say we don't need to eat that. Now my boys are taking on their own reasons as to why we don't need to eat that. They understand the why and choose a healthier option. That really helps this Mama when it comes time to makes decisions on eating away from home!

Nutrition 101 is such a complete curriculum that we were not able to complete it in its entirety for the review. I am excited that we can continue to use it throughout the rest of school year. It is actually designed to be used over several years, adding some challenging activities as your children age. (You all know I love a curriculum that can be used with multiple ages over the course of several years!)

Other titles from Growing Healthy Homes include The Raw Food Feast and Gentle Babies: Essential Oils and Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Childbirth, Infants and Young Children. 

There are also some free MP3 downloads of recorded conference calls!
