What are some novel hands-on activities for teaching nutrition in kindergarten?

Hello LaDonna, I have some links here that are hands on activities you can do with little ones to promote healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle...Hope this helps!! http://www.theeducatorsspinonit.com/2012/03/little-hands-that-cook-with-books-lets.html http://www.mpmschoolsupplies.com/ideas/4456/heart-health-month-roll-exercise-game/ http://ateachingmommy.com/2011/01/happy-and-sad-teeth-collage/ http://www.kindergartenkindergarten.com/2011/08/teaching-school-routines-is-essential-the-first-few-days-weeks-of-school-i-go-over-every-single-routine-i-can-think-of-and.html Again, I hope this helps. I know this is such an important unit that may not get covered as much as it should. If you start them young, then they will more likely take on a healthy lifestyle!

Very useful websites posted here! It's great that teachers are able to bring nutrition into the classroom at such a young age.

This is one that I really liked to show students the importance of washing their hands and how germs transfer https://www.teachengineering.org/view_activity.php?url=collection/cub_/activities/cub_energy2/cub_energy2_lesson04_activity2.xml
