     My Thoughts on this Product:

    We started implementing natural and organic eating into our diet back in November 2010. When I found out I had the opportunity to review this product, I was very excited. Telling my children the importance of eating well and actually serving them wholesome meals was only the beginning. This unit study takes what I've done to the next level. I can now show them why we made the decision to eat the way we do.

     This gives you healthy recipes, wonderful discussion questions and helpful activities that show my kids the benefits to eating healthy for a lifetime. Perfect addition to our homeschooling and to our lifestyle.
