"Ants on a Log" may not sound particularly appetizing, but kids love this nutritious peanut butter-and-raisin snack - one of the many in Junior Master Gardener Health and Nutrition from the Garden - because of its taste AND its less-than-elegant name. Most kids don't eat the five recommended servings of fruits and vegetables each day, and yet, the formative childhood years are the best time to begin healthy eating habits. With that in mind, JMG Health and Nutrition from the Garden takes an imaginative approach to teach young gardeners that eating nutritious food - and growing it - can be fun and enjoyable. JMG Health and Nutrition from the Garden covers growing vegetables and fruit, how to garden on a budget, the ABC's of healthy eating, the Food Guide Pyramid, and how to practice food safety. Students even learn the basics of more in-depth concepts such as Integrated Pest Management, plant propagation, and soil composition. Containing a variety of activities such as growing bean tepees, making peanut butter, or baking "strip chips" or sweet potato chips, the book also boasts planting charts, diagrams of plant anatomy, and simple budget spreadsheets. JMG Health and Nutrition from the Garden is the perfect way for kids to enjoy learning about healthy lifestyles or future careers in the health, nutrition, or agriculture industries.
