Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives
Designed for grades K-3 and divided into three categories: THINK, EAT, and MOVE Healthy, the Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives™ instructional activities provide step-by-step directions to carry out these easy-to-use lessons in your classroom.
It’s about understanding what being healthy means and setting meaningful and reachable goals about nutrition and physical activity.
How do we eat healthy? By incorporating three factors into our daily meals: Variety, Balance, and Moderation.
It is universally recommended that elementary school-age children accumulate a total of at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
