I went through this pack with my 4 year old as they have just decided they only want to eat junk food now! The pack was well written and easy for my 4 year old to understand. The activities prompted further discussion and my small person understands the importance of healthy living and exercise a lot more now. Super mini pack.
This resource has provided a number of resources, ready made, to use with my class to help them understand a balanced diet. I particularly like the cards with nutritional information to help children make healthy choices, but to also see that they can enjoy chocolate in moderation!
My son has complex disabilities and some things are not easily adaptable for him, but this pack was brilliantly easy to use. He particularly liked the charts and they helped him to focus on physical activity, which is not easy when you can't do a lot of physical things.
This is an excellent pack. it helps to show your child all about healthy eating with interesting charts and banners etc
I have been using Teaching Packs for many years and they are always colourful, informative and easy to adapt to different age levels. The Healthy Living pack is no different! Great work yet again. - I'm already looking forward to the Myths and Legends Pack !!
Love all your packs. Fabulous work.
I really appreciate all the packs that you have designed. I've used most of them and find them really beneficial. Thank you for the great efforts you're doing! Keep it up!
Exactly what I was looking for! I needed a health unit and you came through for me without me even asking! Love your units!!!
Thank you for this newest and informative pack! My year 3 children are about to start a series of lessons about nutrition as part of our science topic. There are so many resources that I will be able to use within these lessons. Helping children understand about nutrition and healthy living NOW is an essential in understanding how they can then be healthy adults in the future! Well done!
Thanks a lot for this very useful pack to introduce food and health. My French pupils love talking about food!
