How to Use This Course
Nourishing Nuggets by Wendy Stoller on SchoolhouseTeachers.com is a family health course that looks at the basics of nutrition such as macro- and micronutrients and then moves into studying what we eat and drink for various meals and snacks throughout the day. Many teacher helps and suggestions are given to help the parent lead their family on a mission to make healthier meal plans and choices together.
Welcome to Nourishing Nuggets! I am so thankful you have decided to join us. There seems to be no end to the number of books written annually about what is truly healthy. It is no secret that many of them conflict. One can easily become discouraged and give up altogether! I have been tempted to. While Nourishing Nuggets is not intended to be a comprehensive course, it is designed to give you small Nuggets of introduction to some of the basic concepts of health!
During our busy homeschool days it is sometimes difficult to fit “health” into our already numerous subjects! If you’re like me, you have tried to find a good health course and never completed one due to its ill fit! It is my hope that Nourishing Nuggets will deliver you brief, yet helpful lessons in health that you can use with any type of home educating style.
I intend to introduce topics and provide information in a manner that will give you a good foundation to pursue further, should you or your children choose to do so. I am writing from a Biblical perspective and hope to present a balanced view without taking you down a path into any extreme recommendations. Thank you so much for joining me!
