Through the implementation of this program/set of lessons, children will learn the importance of nutrition using characters, games and activities that incorporate social, emotional, physical and language development.   The goal is to teach young children the importance of monitoring their food choices and to motivate them to include healthy foods, or fuel,  in each meal.

 

1)Nutrition Introduction Lesson:  

Rationale: It is important for young children to learn that food supplies our strength, immunity, brain power, and energy.  This knowledge will help them pay attention to and make healthy food choices.

 

2)Physical Development Lesson:

Rationale:  Role playing activities will help to internalize the concept that food is fuel, while giving children an opportunity to move around and associate healthy food choices with fun!

 

3)Social and Emotional Development Lesson:

Rationale:  These activities provide opportunities for children to practice socially appropriate behavior with their peers, such as taking turns, cooperating with peers, making decisions, and regulating emotions.

 

4)Language Development Lesson:

Rationale: As the final lesson in the series, this is the opportunity for children to use the new language they have learned, which includes both complex vocabulary and varied sentence structure, in order to express their ideas.  This lesson will also include a coronation ceremony that will induct children into a healthy eating lifestyle.
