Help your Year 2 - 3 students learn to
make healthy food choices, appreciate the importance of daily exercise and
develop healthy habits they will maintain throughout their lives. Students will
learn what foods are healthy and why, where their food comes from, and how and
why we exercise to stay healthy with activities such as "What is a Fruit?" and "Did
You Stretch Today?". Encourage your students to journal about nutrition,
fitness and health to reinforce what they have learned. Healthy Habits for Healthy Kids, Years 2 - 3 has a journal available
for download at go.hbe.com.au that
students may use alongside the activities. Additional activities are also
available to download. A Healthy Habits classroom poster is available to

Points of interest:

  • The book has been adapted
    to include the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education
    expectations for Years 2 - 3.

  • Five food groups are
    explored: fruits, vegetables, whole grains and cereals, protein and dairy.

  • Classroom-appropriate
    exercises are suggested.

  • Additional health
    concepts include food safety, germ prevention and dental care.

  • The Australian Curriculum
    supports a whole-child approach to education - one that ensures that each
    student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged in their learning.
    This series also supports a whole-child approach to education and can be used
    to support such health and nutrition policies as the NSW Department of
    Education Nutrition in Schools Policy.
