What is Nutrition 101?

“Nutrition 101: Choose Life! is a three-in-one family nutrition and health program for all ages that presents the major body systems, how they function, their common health issues, the benefits of good food and the consequences of bad food.

Its 448 pages include into six units:

1) The Brain and Nervous System;
2) Digestion and Elimination;
3) Respiration and Olfactory;
4) Muscular and Skeletal Systems;
5) Cardiovascular and Immune Systems;
and 6) Endocrine System and Emotions.

Biblically based and packed with hands-on activities, science and art projects and nearly 80 family-friendly recipes, this program teaches and reinforces the why’s of what we should eat, not just “because I said so.” Containing a complete reference guide filled with nutrition facts, charts, practical tips and an exhaustive index, Nutrition 101: Choose Life! Will serve as a constant resource for improved health and abundant living.”

About the Authors:

“Co-authored by:

2. homeschool mother and researcher Sera Johnson, B.MU;
3. mother and writer/editor Laura Hopkins, B.S.;
4. and mother, grandmother and former Home Economics teacher Karen Hopkins, B.S.”

Overall Impression:

This is an outstanding resource. It is very detailed and would make an excellent curriculum for science and health. Basically, it works as a unit study. You read a chapter and then use the discussion questions. You are then given recipes and activities. Everything is designed for your family to absorb and retain the information presented. A suggested schedule is for a five day week, where you are given something to do on each day – such as making the recipe or doing an assignment. There is so much information here; you will have plenty to keep busy for a long time. The photographs in this book are clear and vibrant. I plan to print out all the pages and put them into a binder.

Personally, I have done extensive research on health and nutrition. I was diagnosed and treated for cancer more than 12 years ago. At that time, our family adopted a natural eating program. This book covers most of what I learned. It is encouraging and will provide ongoing support and inspiration for those who want to eat healthy.
