Nutrition & Exercise: How to Teach Children Lifelong Healthy Habits

Duration: 1.5 hrs

Lifestyle habits and views centered on nutrition and exercise are typically established in early childhood. Unhealthy habits are associated with poor health outcomes and a lack of opportunities later in life. As a preschool teacher, you are uniquely positioned to impact early views and habits and can set children up for success later in life. By the end of this training you will: 

  1. Identify 3 main causes of childhood obesity 
  2. List 5 strategies you can use to offer more active movement in your classroom daily
  3. Describe two ways you can support your class in trying new foods.

This training will equip you to implement the art of offering healthy choices for your students throughout their day. With some forethought and planning, just about every subject area can be used to incorporate fitness and healthy choices. This training emphasizes the importance of movement throughout the school day and will teach you how to be intentional with planning fun movement breaks even when time outdoors isn’t possible. As an added bonus, these strategies used to teach healthy lifestyle habits will also help with classroom behaviors so it is a win win for preschool teachers!
