Healthy Bodies: Teaching Kids What they Need to Know
by Kathy Kater
Whether it’s the “thin ideal” for looks, a “normal” BMI for health, or the “perfect” body for athletics, most kids today learn to compare their bodies to external standards that are not right for them. In an effort to meet the standard, many make choices that add to or create problems. With eating disorders on the one hand and higher rates of obesity on the other, educators, healthcare providers, treatment facilities, and others need help to address the topic of weight effectively and in a way that reduces weight stigma.

In ten, comprehensive and engaging lessons, the Healthy Bodies mission is to teach children to care for instead of compare their bodies by promoting health enhancing behaviors instead of an “ideal” size. An urgently needed curriculum for universal classroom use or in any treatment venue, scripted lessons and experiential activities guide kids of all ages to:

  • Maintain a mindful, caring connection to their bodies from the inside-out.
  • Develop an identity based on who they are rather than how they look.
  • Respect genetic diversity in body size and shape and reject weight stigma.
  • Understand how appearance changes of puberty.
  • Develop critical thinking about messages promoting the “right size/wrong size” mentality.
  • Chose positive role models that support their deeper values.
  • Seek health instead of size through positive eating and physical activity for all.
  • Support each other in having a healthy body image, eating well, and staying fit.

“This curriculum should be in the hands of every elementary school teacher. The revised edition has the potential to transform classrooms, and is the resource for any school that wants students to develop positive body esteem, resist unhealthy messages regarding weight, shape, appearance, fitness, and food, and be equipped with the building blocks to a healthy lifestyle.” — Margo Maine, PhD, Author of The Body Myth and several other books
