Eat your vegetables.  Drink more water.  Go outside and play.  How many times have you told your kids these very things?  It's not always easy to get them to understand the significance of living a healthy lifestyle at a young age, but the newest module of A.D.A.M. Inside Out: The Inside Story on Health and Wellness will help.   

The Inside Story on Health & Wellness addresses the importance of making smart food choices throughout the day to maximize health potential and maintain energy.  It shows kids how they can incorporate 60-minutes of physical activities into their daily routines.  Children that follow this program will be introduced to the Food Pyramid, learn which foods provide necessary nutrients and vitamins, and how to read the Nutrition Facts food label--information that will help to prevent chronic illnesses and the onset of childhood obesity.

Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years, resulting in a generation of children who are facing very adult health issues such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.  This is an epidemic in our country--an epidemic that can easily be avoided. As homeschoolers, you have an inside track--a special ability to safeguard your children from becoming a part of this unhealthy statistic.  Changing the trend in the rate of child obesity in America is not difficult as long as parents are willing to accept the challenge of teaching their children healthy lifestyles. As a homeschooling parent you can do that better than most parents and the The Inside Story on Health & Wellness can easily be incorporated into homeschool lesson plans to teach the key elements of healthy living and is conducive to your child's self-paced learning.
