Today I started what is going to be a 6 week program on healthy living. I will be working with 3rd-5th graders. We will be focusing on nutrition and how making better eating habits can help us in other parts of our lives. Such as general health, sports, and can even help us focus better in school.
Today we just did a general “see where we are group” I asked the kids to write down their 5 favorite foods, top 3 places to eat, and favorite things to get when they go to these places… while they were doing this most of their time was spent talking about how many different McDonalds meals they love and they are unsure of how they are going to narrow down their favorites…
I am kind of nervous to see what they answered and what I am getting myself into. It is going to be difficult trying to show kids that eating health and balanced meals can actually be yummy and fun. These kids have already told me that their is “No way in the world you can make healthy food good”
Challenge Accepted Young ones… we will see who wins this round! :p
