How Does My Body Get Energy? (Macronutrients) Coloring Page
This coloring page simply introduces macronutrients to your child/student. I believe it is important to begin introducing scientific language to even the youngest children, even while explaining the concepts simply. This coloring page does just that. A simple page to color images from the three categories of macronutrients: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and explain that they all give you energy. Great for the classroom or homeschool!
How do you get your energy? Teaching Tips
This is a fun topic for kids because they want to how they get their energy to run and jump!
It is also a GREAT introduction to nutrition basics, as it shares the three macronutrients (fat, protein, carbohydrate) where all calories come from, and also where you get some of the essential building blocks of good health.
This can help empower families to make health choices throughout the day as you they can make sure you are not eating from only one category.
As my coaching focuses on the health of the family, part of what I cover is teaching YOU nutrition basics, so that you can in turn teach your KIDS.
When you gain an understanding of nutrition basics and how to eat a balanced diet-- without worry, stress, or calorie-counting, then you can talk to your kids about healthy choices in a way that will help them make healthy choices for life!
