Nutrition Day 2: Milk & Water

Milk & Water

Today we learned that water and milk are very good for our bodies.  We made a drinking chart and decorated a water bottle.


Discuss: Milk is good for our bodies because it has calcium for our bones and teeth, it has vitamins and protein to help us grow well and stay active. Water is good for your bodies because it helps us digest food, control our body temperature and carry waste materials. Almost 2/3 of your body is make up of water; many of the good foods that we eat contain water too.
