Nutrition and Activity Journals
Teaching kids and teenagers the importance of staying healthy is vital to lifelong fitness. The exercise and eating habits developed at this age are likely to affect their health and happiness their whole life. These journals provide an excellent way to teach students good habits, providing space to record daily exercise and food intake. Daily boxes (enough for a whole semester) prompt students to record food, water and soda consumption; sleep patterns; nutritional daily requirements; and exercises performed.
The Elementary Journal (48 pgs) provides recording space for three days a week; the other journals include 7 days. Having students record their diet and exercise is a great way for them to spot unhealthy tendencies. The other part of these great journals: included health information and plenty of tips on developing a healthy lifestyle. With age appropriate content, these show students how to adjust their eating and activities. The Middle School Journal (80 pgs) expands on the elementary content and adds National Standards and President's Challenge (a set of exercises used in many P.E. classes to gauge fitness), healthy living, MyPlate nutrition guidance and places to develop a healthy lifestyle plan. The P.E. Journal (92 pgs) provides requirements to receive a PE credit on a high school transcript, National standards and the President's Challenge and helpful information on the benefits of exercising and eating right. There are fitness charts, MyPlate guidelines, and places to develop an overall fitness plan and track goals. With grade-level focused nutrition and exercise tips, these journals will reinforce healthy lifestyle habits. Great to use with such books as 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Help your child get on the road to lifelong fitness. Non- reproducible. pb. ~ Rachel/Deanne
