Healthy Kids live Healthy Lives!!!!
Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to partner with Unity Point Health - Trinity to offer this fun and fact-filled wellness guide. The most important part of being a mentor is modeling positive and healthy behavior. Children learn the most from observing the actions of others - particularly those they respect and trust the most.
The Healthy Kids Guide provides an opportunity for “Bigs” to help their “Littles” embrace a healthy lifestyle by actively engaging them in the outlined practices of nutrition, fitness, hygiene, first aid and safety.
The Healthy Kids Guide can best be used one or two pages at a time. Incorporate nutrition activities when you are planning to meet your “Little” for a meal or when you are planning to make a meal together. Look at theTop Ten Ways to Be Fit and Have Fun page when planning to get together for some fun activities. Use the safety or first aid tips at a time when you can sit down and discuss them together.
The more you incorporate these fun ways to stay healthy and safe in the everyday things you do with your “Little”, the more likely your “Little” will begin practicing and using these things in their daily lives.
