Resources: The At My Best™ Program and Toolkit

Resources: The "At My Best™" Program and Toolkit

At My Best™ is a Free school-based children's wellness program for students in kindergarten to grade three that focuses on three key areas of wellness: physical activity, healthy eating and emotional well-being.

The program, including a free toolkit (see photo to the right), is available only to Canadian schools and there are a limited number available. So priority will be given to schools that have received support from their principal for implementation, and have committed to deliver the program in each of the relevant grade levels (Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 3), including the take-home component.

Resources for Non-Canadians
If you're not Canadian, the website contains some resources that would be fun for your students.

Check out the "Kids" link and find some free games, songs, activities and even healthy recipes. I particularly liked the Grocery Game, in which kids select grocery items and receive a score based on how healthy that selection is. Check it out at:
