Reading children's books with healthy eating messages encourages children to try new foods and make healthy choices. Each lesson includes a book about healthy eating, a physical activity, a food-tasting activity, and a chance to practice healthy habits like hand washing. Lessons also include family newsletters that can be copied and sent home to help families make healthy choices.
The curriculum is three-hole punched and comes with a cover and spine that can be slipped into a binder with clear front and side pockets.
Publications numbers for pre-kindergarten newsletters are: N203 (Lesson 1), N200 (Lesson 2), N204 (Lesson 3), N202 (Lesson 4), N201 (Lesson 5), N205 (Lesson 6), N207 (Lesson 7), N209 (Lesson 8), N210 (Lesson 9), N211 (Lesson 10) and N212 (Lesson 11).
