Every single day, from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed, science impacts my life and it would be utterly impossible for me to live without science. Every Saturday, for example, whenever I spend time with my two daughters at home, I cannot escape the influence of science. Saturday begins with breakfast, and in preparing this breakfast, science has taught me that I should prepare only the healthiest food for me and my daughters. According to Roy (2012), the healthiest food for children must those with low fat and sugar, and rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber.
His suggestions include skim or low-fat milk instead of whole milk, graham crackers and vanilla wafers instead of cookies, and water or 100% fruit juice instead of soda, punch, fruit drinks and sports drinks. The author even mentioned that a balanced meal for children must contain five groups of foods: the Bread, Cereal, Rice and Pasta Group, the Vegetable Group, the Fruit Group, the Milk Group, and the Meat Group. The most important thing that a diet must accomplish, according to the author, is for the child not to develop diseases and the state of being overweight.
After the science of nutrition, the next is biology. After breakfast, we sometimes go around the park or visit the nearby zoo as Lauren is so excited to explore it. When we visit the zoo and every time Lauren points at an animal, I ask her if she still remembers what I once told her about that particular animal. Everything here is all about the science of biology. I to my daughter some bits of knowledge regarding the animals like what the zoo animals eat and how they live in the wild.
Aside from the fact that this particular science fascinates Lauren, it also teaches her to be more loving to animals and to the environment. Furthermore, her love for animals also somehow inspires her to be more curious about biology. Aside from all these, I also show Lauren pictures of animals not found in the local zoo, like the Peruvian alpaca, which is known to be friendly children (“ Alpaca Facts, ” 2012).
In fact, Lauren is more fascinated by this fact and she is hoping to see a real alpaca soon.
