[IP] School nurse: Help!

I explain it to my preschoolers like this:
Your body needs fuel just to live, that's my basal rate.
Anything extra I put into my body, I need to bolus for.
Any extra energy I use (like snow shoveling here in Minnesota) I need less
They actually use the terms bolus and carbs on a daily basis.
Keep it simple, I know very few adults as intelligent as a preschooler.
Good luck.
