14 Jul Back to Basics – Nutrition
Last week, we invited you to take a moment and consider what comes to mind about a few topics. Today, we’d like to focus on nutrition. What thoughts, feelings and questions surface when you hear the word, “nutrition?”
According to Merriam-Webster, the kids definition of nutrition is:
the act or process of nourishing or being nourished
That’s a simple, yet impressive definition for kids. And while simple, it captures the word for what it is. By now we all know that we can complicate just about anything, but when the fad diets, food rules, and diet culture are stripped away, we can trust that “nutrition” is truly how we nourish our bodies, which includes the food and drink we consume to do so.
To accompany our kids definition today, here is our kid-friendly blueprint for what to nourish our bodies with. Of course there are modifications based on personal health, but in general, here we have it folks. Food is fuel.
