Good Nutrition Month Journaling Ideas for Kids — These 53 journal prompts have a dual purpose—they offer productive beginnings for journal entries, but they also celebrate Good Nutrition Month (March). With these food and nutrition-focused prompts, students will consider the importance of eating healthily. They will also think about specific ways to improve their diets. Questions about vegetarianism challenge students to think about alternative ways of eating, while prompts about family eating habits allow them to consider making dietary changes.
Just as students need balanced diets to keep their bodies healthy, they also need to study a full range of subjects in order to improve their minds.
Journaling is a beneficial practice for both young and old students, as it provides them with a healthy outlet for thoughts and emotions that might otherwise go unexpressed. A student’s journal is a safe place for him or her to explore ideas and articulate thoughts without judgment.
During Good Nutrition Month — or any time of the year — encourage your students to explore what it means to eat healthy, nutritious foods.
