Reviewers Comments: The purpose of this resource is to stress the importance of healthy eating and physical activity. Each lesson includes a physical and a sit down activity. The curriculum includes eight lessons, which include
  • My Pyramid: I Lost My Basket
  • Family Meals: In the Kitchen
  • Fruits and Vegetables: Going to the Farmers Market
  • Physical Activity: Wild Vines
  • Farm to Table: Bread Comes to Life
  • Grains Give You Energy: Tortilla Tortilla
  • Picky Eaters: Eat a Vegetable
  • Physical Activity: Get Up Off the Sofa!

Within each lesson the educator is guided to give a brief overview of what is to be expected and to ask the students of any prior knowledge of the topic. Also included is an evaluation for the students, so the teacher can assess what the students learned from the lesson.

Each lesson comes with handouts and a recommended recipe, and includes a corresponding story and music CD. The "Physical Activity" section in each lesson is paired with a specific song. Each referenced song includes the lyrics too. The "sit down" activity involves students working at their desk. An example of this type of activity is an arts and craft project.
