Food for Thought (Nutrition): Mini Med FLEX Camp

In this 5 week flex class, we'll cover the concept of nutrition and how it's studied, macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats, proteins), micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), and making food choices. The class is food-positive & non-shaming.

Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will gain a basic understanding of what our bodies need from our food in order to stay healthy.  They will learn to read food labels to hunt for specific nutrients.
As a family physician with a decade in private practice, I love teaching young people about how their bodies work.  I believe that people who understand their bodies will take better care of them.  
* Learners will complete a worksheet for each topic
* Learners will post a photo of their worksheet in the classroom
* Learners will be asked to answer a prompt before and after the recorded lesson every week, which may be a getting-to-know-you question or related to the material
*Learners will have an additional video for a  real- life lesson extension and answer a discussion question about this
* Learners are encouraged to comment on classmates' work as well
* Learners will find examples of particular nutrients in their own eating (which nutrient will be assigned based on what we've learning that week)
*coloring and writing supplies *there is a printable worksheet or coloring page every week that was designed specifically for this class. If you don't have access to a printer, it's totally fine to draw a picture and take notes instead!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Nothing in this class will be or is intended to be medical advice.  This is merely educational in nature and will be a surface-level overview.  Your student will not be coming out of this class knowing anything about how to diagnose or treat these conditions and we will not be discussing any personal medical questions/needs.  Students should come with general questions about the topic.
