Time: 11:30 AM
Course Length: 2.5 hours on two days
Experience Required: none
Class Size: up to 10
Day One: For the Love of Food and Water
Students will be given a chart of foods and the types of nutrients in them and the ways those nutrients benefit them, both short and long term. We will then have a discussion about how often they find themselves eating the foods that their body requires to stay healthy and energized. We will also discuss the importance of water consumption and tips on how to make drinking more water easier and more exciting. Each participant will be given a journal to begin keeping track of the food they eat and how much water they drink.
Day Two: Facts about Sweets
Students will be given a hands on experiment about sugar, how much of it is in the foods they eat, and the ways that sugar affect the body. Students will begin categorizing the foods they eat into beneficial and damaging in their journals. Students will be challenged to be more aware of the things that go into their bodies and how those things affect their well being, stress levels, and sleep patterns.
Home Activities: Keep journaling about the things that are going into your body. Find ways of rewarding yourself when attaining goals to substitute damaging foods with beneficial ones.
Day Three: Building Healthy Habits
Students will learn about the foods that impact their appearance (hair, skin, nails) the most and how to incorporate those foods into their diets. We will also discuss other health habits (sun protection, drug and alcohol use, exercise, sleep, and water consumption) that impact how our bodies feel and look.
Home Activities: With another friend and/or family member, take a health challenge. Create a goal that will greatly impact your health and stick to it for a month. Find out how easy it is to keep doing it once it is a habit. Keep journaling!
