Let's Learn about Healthy Eating

136 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

There is a growing awareness that healthy eating plays a crucial role in the development of young people. 'Healthy Schools' and popular television programs have raised the interest in this subject.

Margaret draws on her practical experience to produce a book that will engage children in activities and provide teachers with the resources necessary to stimulate interest.

There are nine themes including breakfast, dinner and parties and celebration. Each theme has a Circle Time start, a draw-and-talk or draw-and-write activity followed by activities which include 'Let's Grow It' and 'Let's Make It'.

The involvement of families is encouraged in order to engage school and home in cooperation on the subject of food and health.
