I spent this morning putting together a unit on health and nutrition using the choosemyplate.gov website. After having spent a long weekend at grandma's house, they came back with a HUGE attitude about the food we eat. Instead of just making them do it (my mom does not eat the whole grains, veggies, and legumes that we do) I decided to show them WHY we eat the way we do.
There are some awesome resources there! Lots of printables and nutritional tips.
Okay so here's the question... do I add information on Zave's Irritable Bowel Syndrome and my own problems while having Gestational Diabetes and the risks of getting type 2 diabetes? Or is that just beating them over the heads with it?
