This Fall I am leading a class at our homeschool co-op called Healthy Diet For Healthy Bodies. The class is for ages 5-7 and is listed as k-1 grade. I have 17 children including my oldest to teach so I decided to read a few books each class and then designed this printable to go along.
This works for homeschool families as well.
- A My Plate worksheet
- Visual & written narration on fruit
- Sugars & Fats
I turned ours into a mini booklet simply by stapeling it together. Each class we complete one entry which is correlated to the book we read.

Good Enough to Eat: A Kid’s Guide to Food and Nutrition Is really good!
It discussed the food you eat and the roles nutrients play in your body. What foods have those nutrients. How nutritious food helps you grow, breathe, move, think, etc. It even discusses digestion in a kid friendly way.
Good Enough to Eat: A Kid’s Guide to Food and Nutrition is probably my favorite book to introduce young children to a healthy diet.
The remaining books are these:
Each book is for a lesson and can be completed once a week or every other for a total of 7 lessons. Each lesson add in a snack that is related to the topic. For example, we started with the fruit group and I brought apples. Next class I will get a little more creative and we will be making a vegetable themed food craft that they can eat after.
