Overpriced........... Dec 12, 2004
I'm a big fan of Ms. Ely's book, Saving Dinner, so I was very excited to find her study guide for kids. However, I was disappointed to open the box and find only 32 one-sided pages, loose with no binding at all. Of these, only 21 pages are worksheets and parent guides--the rest are a food diary! It's cleverly designed and kid-friendly, but not worth $8.95! In addition, the information is heavily weighted toward identifying carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Good info for kids, but I was hoping to steer my picky eater toward fruits and veggies and there was little information on the their benefits.
Great way to teach your kids how to eat better. Sep 7, 2004
This has been a great tool in helping my kids understand why they should not eat junk! Highly recommended.
Healthy! Oct 29, 2003
A healthy study unit for my kids with recipes they will eat. I am glad I came across this.
My son was interested in this study! Jul 3, 2001
My 12 yr-old son really enjoyed the study. He is now reading labels, asking questions, and drinking more water!
The parent pages are very helpful. I enjoyed the websites and books that Leanne recommends, along with the idea of the kids creating their own cookbook. The study is very-well planned and easy to implement.
It's Fun to be Healthy May 21, 2001
This unit study is written in a way kids can understand nutrition and WANT to eat healthy foods. You must have the Healthy Foods Cookbook to go along with it. Mom (or teacher) goes over the info in the cookbook and the children have short work pages in the Unit Study to fill in. Leanne Ely writes in such a humerous style, it makes the study fun!
