Activity Introduction

In this lesson, we get active, moving and grooving along to music.

Students explore the different ways we can be healthy, focusing on fabulous food, wonderful water, moving, grooving and restful recharge. The students make a ‘Healthy Me’ poster, showing all of the ways you can reduce added sugar every day, drink more water and get plenty of rest. The posters can be used as a display to share with others.

Teacher content information: 

SugarByHalf ( promotes action to reduce sugar-related diseases so that Australians live better, stronger and healthier lives.

Their message is simple: to reduce added sugar consumption by half. Eating too much added sugar is a key driver of serious health problems including obesity, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, tooth decay, dementia and mental health conditions. A poor diet also puts children behind their peers, impacting their brain development, sleep and ability to learn. Poor diet choices ultimately mean that this generation of children could be the first in modern history to live shorter lives than their parents.
