Help your Year 4 - 5 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 how food grows, where it comes from, and what vitamins and nutrients are
in various fruits and vegetables. They will learn how to develop and maintain
physical fitness and wellbeing with activities such as "The World Around You"
and "Healthy Lifestyles". Encourage them to journal about nutrition, fitness and
health to reinforce what they have learned. Healthy
Habits for Healthy Kids, Years 4 - 5
also has a journal resource available to
download at go.hbe.com.au alongside
some additional activities. A classroom poster is also available to purchase.

Points of Interest:

  • The book has been adapted
    to include the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education expectations
    for Years 4 - 5.

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

  • Students learn about
    kilojoules, carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins and minerals, and the roles
    nutrients play in overall health.

  • 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.
