Trim Healthy You Curriculum – BEGINNER Level (designed for 3rd-5th graders)
Trim Healthy You (THY) is a full health and nutrition curriculum for children and teens. THY focuses on health rather than weight and teaches students how to use whole foods to fuel their body to be the best and healthiest it can be.
Trim Healthy You (THY) is a full health and nutrition curriculum for children and teens in three different learning levels; Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Each level teaches students how to use whole foods to fuel their body to be the best and healthiest it can be. THY focuses on health rather than weight. It explains how our bodies work and how food works in us. Students learn a sound and sensible approach to eating and physical activity to improve their health now and to prevent many needless health and weight issues for the rest of their lives. Although weight is not a focus (all unique body types are celebrated), if a student is struggling with weight issues, the information will be a natural, pressure free, joy inspiring help as they implement the ideas and suggestions on how to eat to thrive.
Each level comes as a kit with a work book, laminated recipe and exercise cards, printables, posters and access to an online, interactive Parent Portal.
The Beginner Level was designed for 3rd-5th graders and the Intermediate Level for 6th-8th graders. Ninth graders and up can still benefit from the information if you’d like to use the Intermediate until the Advanced Level (High School) is released (projected 2020). You know your child and can gauge which level would help them most, so don’t feel obligated to go exactly by the grade levels suggested.
