Description:
Family modeling of diet and exercise can influence girls’ notions of anti-fat and body dissatisfaction. Overweight children are just as likely to internalize and endorse stigmas pertaining to overweight and obese individuals. This may be due to the media and the belief that weight is solely an issue of individual responsibility (i.e., “they should eat less”). Children can learn that there are many ways to enjoy movement, not only through participating on sports teams.

Description:
This lesson is designed to teach students to be a little more critical when watching television. The lesson will reinforce that things are not always as they seem on television because the media portray them one way, when in real life they are completely different. Advertising strategies should be discussed in order to increase the students’ awareness of the power of media images. Students need to come away with the knowledge that media (and what they see on television) are not always “real” and they need to think about the images they see and question when media doesn’t make sense. Children at this age have vivid imaginations and they are also easily swayed. At times they may not be sure of what is real or not (whether or not animals can talk).

Description:
Children at young ages notice if adults model being on a diet or talking about it. Teachers and parents should be as confident and comfortable with their own body image as possible to model acceptance and love for oneself. It is important to emphasize the nutritional value of food and support the idea of food as being part of a social and pleasurable need. It is also important not to over monitor or regulate a child’s eating, but to encourage them to self-regulate and attend to cues such as hunger, thirst and satiety.
