In our house nutrition isn't one of those subjects that we have to single out and teach. It is part of living. We talk about nutrition a lot. In big ways and in little ways.
As an athlete Beach has already had a good deal of exposure to formal nutrition concepts. Every summer she attends a Regional gymnastics camp. The camp includes a nutrition class.
Last year our gym hosted a nutrition lecture that the parents could attend as well so we could hear firsthand the information our girls were getting. We came away with a nice little recipe booklet and some good rules for fueling before and after workouts- something our head coach takes seriously!
This is one of those I love the freedom of homeschooling moments. Last week while BC was working away from the house we started a Chemistry Unit. This week he has been finishing the ceiling work.
Finding quiet & focused school work hard to do we looked for something else. And just like that we hit on the topic of food. Like I said, I don't feel like we need to "teach" it, more like explore it.
Perfect mini unit to squeeze in between now and the last travel meet of the season!

Baby J and her family are moving to Florida at the end of this week.
We are super excited for them to begin a new adventure.
Of course we are going to miss them!!!
When Baby J moves to Florida she might miss us but she won't miss the chickens!
