Healthy Nutritional Tips for 21st Century Families

on October 13, 2008

Healthy eating and good nutrition are hallmarks of Maria Montessori’s philosophy In many Montessori schools and homeschool environments, children learn about nutrition and food preparation. Montessorian Kathy O’Reily was one of the first to recognize the need for a classroom based Montessori cooking curriculum Her Cooking With Children Can Be Easy program is used worldwide in countless Montessori schools. Kathy has created a program that is both easy and fun for teachers and students to use. By becoming involved in hands on activities that include the study of food, children learn about the benefits of nutrients found in food and the fundamental relationship to healthy food choices.

Some advertisers try to entice our children with clever gimmicks and colorful commercials which tout the so called benefits of eating junk food. As educators and homemakers, it’s important for us to continue to find new ways to make healthy food appealing to our children. This is not always an easy task, as most of us live a fast paced society which is filled with many demands for our time. Recently, I decided to set aside a few hours to see what new, healthy alternatives are here or on the horizon. I was amazed with what I discovered. 🙂
