This educator’s tool kit uses behavior change as the overriding framework with positive, realistic, and achievable goals. It is designed to help educators customize their presentations to meet the needs of a variety of audiences, from very young children to high school students to parents.
The tool kit utilizes the following frameworks: environment and family influences; dietary intake analysis; lifestyle assessment; and activities and exercises that promote behavior change. It contains:
-- Three separate packets of handouts and activities for participants
-- Three educational videos ("Childhood Obesity: Lily Faces a Problem," 13 minutes; "Daily Food Choices for Healthy Living," 18 minutes; and "Clap Your Hands," 12 minutes)
-- An extensive educator’s guide to help you implement the materials for maximum effect
