Teaching Kids about Carbs


Whether you homeschool or not, good nutrition should be taught at home.   News flash: Your school may not be teaching it.

What to teach:

  2. Complex carbohydrates. (Usually natural or very little refining) Vegetables, whole grain bread, brown rice, legumes, oatmeal.

Activity:  Make a carbohydrate chain
