The Student Body: Promoting Health at Any Size

The Student Body, a teacher training module, exists to help alert teachers (and parents) to the factors that can trigger unhealthy dieting among children, as well as ways to prevent it.

The website sheds light on six areas of concern:

  • Media and Peer Pressure
  • Healthy Eating
  • Active living
  • Teasing
  • Adult Role Models
  • School Climate

These learning modules use animations, videos and background information to emphasize some of the positive and negative factors affecting body image and unhealthy eating habits.
