Healthy Evidence Based Strategies – Part 2

December 8, 2009

Over the years, we’ve found that schools and youth leaders love it when Healthy Kids Challenge dietitians take the most current evidence based strategies and add our unique twist on healthy.

The twist on healthy focuses on 6 core healthy behaviors and our HEAR – SEE – DO approach.  In essence, we are able to tranform current scientific recommendations into actions – actions that participants practice at all our workshops and events, and can be immediately implemented with the kids the next day.

The 6 core healthy behaviors are a combination of:

  • Centers for Disease Control recommendations – fruit and vegetable intake, physical activity and less screen time
  • Behaviors identified for academic achievement and wellness – breakfast and balanced intake through healthy snacks, beverage choices and serving sizes

Our HEAR-SEE-DO approach gives these recommendations a fun healthy twist!  Teachers and youth leaders find our activities focusing on these 6 healthy behaviors easy to use:

Fruits and Veggies Every Day the Tasty Way
Active Play Every Day
Breakfast GO Power
Snack Attack
Drink Think
Smart Servings
