It teaches basic nutrition, menu planning and much more through interactive questions, projects and worksheets. A great way to spend time with your child in the kitchen and a perfect nutrition resource for homeschoolers. * note: takes 1-4 weeks to complete. Need the book Healthy Foods: an irreverant guide to understanding nutrition and feeding your family well to accompany the Unit Study.
