nutrition for healthy kids

a member of a homeschool group email list
recommended the free curriculum at Nutrition for Healthy Kids.

it’s opened up my children’s eyes to contemporary food issues.
we’ve just about completed unit 1
which covers organic foods, genetically modified foods,
and artificial sweeteners like splenda, aspartame and high fructose corn syrup.

my girls have started looking for the UDSA organic seal themselves
as well as scrutinizing the ingredients of foods they like
for harmful artificial sweeteners
along with the non-halal stuff they already look for.

organicVsConventional

in lesson 1 we did a taste test between organic and conventional apples.
wow! the difference was so clear.
can you tell by looking which apple is organic?
