Real Food Nutrition For The School Year

In my house, the new homeschooling year starts next week. Since I know many of you are on a similar schedule, I thought I’d give you an update about the educational materials I’ve made available. Considering that I’ve been getting at least 5 or more emails a day asking for such an update, it’s probably long past due.

There are a lot of great things in the works, so I hope you’ll keep reading.

Book For Ages 12 & Up
Real Food Nutrition & Health teaches nutrition in an intensely readable and engaging way. It’s inspired by the same love of wholesome, traditional foods that you find in the cookbook Nourishing Traditions, the work of Weston A. Price, the Slow Food movement, and farmer’s markets everywhere. The book is currently available as both an e-book and a 203 page, spiral-bound book.

Book for Ages 6-11
Real Food Nutrition & Health For Kids contains 15 simple and easy to understand lessons written for the elementary aged child. Each lesson includes a creative & fun coloring page relevant to the topic discussed, as well as activities including puzzles, experiments, & more. The publication of this book was delayed due to the birth of my third child. I’m currently working on the final round of edits and hope to have it available to you soon.

Coloring & Activity Book
For the truly little ones, this book compiles the activities and coloring pages from the elementary book and makes them available sans commentary or lessons. This book will be made available when Real Food Nutrition & Health For Kids comes out.

Real Food Nutrition & Health Discussion Questions
For those among you who want to lead discussion groups, or want to give your child a more directed reading of Real Food Nutrition & Health, these discussion questions will probably not be made available until next semester. So look for me to make it available in December.

Real Food Nutrition & Health Audio Book
If you’re an audio book lover who likes to listen to books while driving, exercising, running errands, or doing your laundry, this will be available for purchase in December.

Real Food Nutrition E-Course
This 10 week e-course will run from October 1st through December 10th, with a week off for Thanksgiving. Registration will open September 6th. As a concession to parents, coursework can be graded. Class will include audio files, videos, online group discussions, weekly assignments, and reading materials.

Hope you have a good school year!

    I am so excited about the elementary book. I bought the “Real Food Nutrition and Health” while I was still in recovery from having my 7th baby (back in May.) I kept thinking that this would be awesome to give to my 9 and 11 yod but I wasn’t sure they would understand it. Then I found out you were making one for the younger kids. I can’t wait to get it. I am still fairly new on this journey. But if I can bring my two girls along with me that LOVE the kitchen, I feel like it won’t be so hard to learn all this. Thank you for your efforts to help us all out.

    Oh, this is great! I’ll have to keep it in mind for next year. We usually use Catholic Heritage Curricula’s Behold and See series, and for 4th grade it’s half nutrition. I’m assuming it’s pretty standard food pyramid junk, so I’ve been wishing I could find a traditional foods for kids!

      Well, I’m happy to be of service. :)

      P.S. The coloring pages were illustrated by a VERY talented friend of mine, and they are AWESOME. I’m really looking forward to getting the kids stuff available to the public.

    I love the idea of easy to understand books for our kids! I’m looking forward to seeing the sample page. My problem is school related but my daughter goes to public school. As you probably know between kids’ birthdays and holidays and random other reasons there are always cupcakes and other garbage being fed to my daughter and I really can’t stand it. I want so badly to have a meeting with the principal about it but dont quite know how to organize my thoughts and be clear without being long winded in my appeal to her. Any ideas?
    Thanks for what you do!

    I’m very excited for the children’s version to come out. I have a 9, 8, 6, 4 and 2 yr old. I do not homeschool, but there are certain topics that I teach at home because I do not agree/am not satisfied with the way my children’s Montessori school covers them. Nutrition is one of them and I’m excited to now have a resource to cover that.

    I am SO very excited for the kids’ version to come out. We are homeschoolers (CM and Classical mix). I teach the kids daily about real food, why I make things from scratch, and they help me in the kitchen. However, having something to add to our curriculum would be SO helpful! For the kids to see it down on “paper”, so to speak, would be so beneficial to all of us.

    Thanks SO much with you hard work, even during your BabyMoon!

    God bless you! <

    I’m really excited about your book for 6-11 year olds. This would be great for our family as we are going to start homeschooling for the first tieme this year. I will keep my eyes peeled for when it comes out.
