TOS Homeschool Crew Review - Nutrition 101: Choose Life!

Does you family need to eat better? Do you want to study the Human Body? Do you need a health course for you High School Student? I may have just the product for you!


Nutrition 101 is a complete study of the Human Body and Nutrition. The book is 448 pages long. The units are as follows:
  1. The Brain and Nervous System;
  2. Digestion and Elimination;
  3. Respiration and Olfactory;
  4. Muscular and Skeletal Systems;
  5. Cardiovascular and Immune Systems;
  6. Endocrine System and Emotions. 
Each unit teaches not only the science of the Human Body but also the nutrition that is needed for that portion of the body. Included with the nutrition is what foods you can eat to keep that part of your body healthy and also any supplements that can help. Each unit has 4 lessons and each of the 24 lessons includes hands-on activities, science, art projects and recipes. The book also contains a complete reference guide filled with nutrition facts, charts, practical tips and an exhaustive index. The book is based on the truths of the Bible and passages of the Bible are quoted and referenced throughout the book.

Their are activities in each chapter for Elementary and Secondary students. The activities are varied and interesting. They include things like vocabulary, viewing movies on YouTube, games to play, memorizing scripture, and challenges for better health like eating foods each day for good brain health.

So that you can trust the information in the book the Authors are:
Debra Raybern, N.D., M.H., C.N.C., I.C.A. (Naturopathic Doctor, Master Herbalist, Certified Nutritional Counselor, Internationally Certified Aromatherapist). She is a veteran home school mom and shares from nearly two decades of personal and professional experience.

Karen reversed the prognosis in six short months without medication through the use of specific natural supplements, diet and exercise.

The only problem with this program is the cost. If I had not gotten this to review for free I would not be able to afford it. It is a great product. It is very thorough but the price is so that I would not have been able to afford it this year. Of course, each families budget is different and I can sometimes save up for larger purchases that I really want. I hope, in spite of the price, that some of you check this product out. Take a look at the sample above. It could do a lot to fix your families eating habits and hence your families health, and because of that may be well worth the price.

Note: if you order the CD-ROM this book of 448 pages takes a LOT of printing unless, like me, you don't mind reading to your kids off of pdf's. We were given a pdf download of the book, the same thing you get if you order the CD-ROM. I could not afford to print the whole thing so I just print the necessary pages as we go along and we read the book directly from the pdf. If that is not something you like to do you may want to count the cost of having to print it yourself, though many of my crew members printed most of the book in black  and white and only the absolutely necessary pages in color. Weigh this option against the option of buying the book already printed.

Personal Note: If you added Notebooking pages or Lapbook Elements it would really add to the study.

This could easily be counted as a 1/2 or maybe even full credit of Health for your homeschool high school student.
