Introduction to the Curriculum
EatFit teaches students to set goals to establish personal health habits appropriate to the changing needs of adolescence. With EatFit, students explore and practice the skills necessary for a physically active lifestyle and healthy food choices. This curriculum is designed to improve eating and fitness choices of middle school adolescents. Lessons include nutrition basics, web-based diet analysis, information about energy and calories, label reading, exercise, fast food, breakfast, and media influence.
Resources have been developed to help educators plan programming using EatFit in their communities. An overview is available and lesson assessment tools have been developed for all lessons.
