Healthy Buddies™: A Comprehensive School-Based Health Promotion Program

Endocrinology & Diabetes Unit, BC Children's Hospital in partnership with educators from BC School District 46 (Sunshine Coast) / 2008

Healthy Buddies™ is comprehensive school-based health education and health promotion program that empowers elementary-school children to live healthier lives. The Program focuses on promoting healthy attitudes and behaviours towards body image, nutrition, and activity. Healthy Buddies™ adopts an innovative approach in the delivery of content knowledge, attitudes and skills. It is a teacher-guided, student-facilitated program.

All materials needed for Program delivery are included in the Classroom and Fitness Loops Resources. Additional activities are also included, to complement the core program delivery. All intermediate and primary lessons are prepared and provided to teachers in the two resource binders included in the Classroom Bin. All materials needed for the physical activity component of the Program, including a Healthy Buddies™ Fitness Loop Teacher's Guide, are included in the Fitness Loop Bin.

Schools typically order one Fitness Loop Bin, however larger schools with two gymnasiums should order two Fitness Loop Bins. Each pair of buddy teachers (1 primary, 1 intermediate) needs one Classroom Bin to share. For additional information about Program delivery, for a Program overview and to view a sample lesson, go to www.healthybuddies.ca.

Program Games

Healthy Buddies™ Program Games: "Go Move", "Go Fuel", "Go Feel Good!"

Endocrinology & Diabetes Unit, BC Children's Hospital in partnership with educators from BC School District 46 (Sunshine Coast) / 2008

The Healthy Buddies™ Program empowers children to live healthier lives by providing them with knowledge about, as well as encouraging positive attitudes toward, the three components of health: physical activity (Go Move!), healthy eating (Go Fuel!) and feeling good about yourself (Go Feel Good!). The program is designed to be fun and engaging for elementary school-aged children, while providing them with health education and the tools they need to make good health decisions for themselves later in life.

Six "Go Move!" and "Go Fuel!" games are included in the Healthy Buddies™ School Program. Now parents, caregivers and teachers can order these Healthy Buddies™ games separately. The games are effective as a stand-alone tool for the promotion of health education. They are played with small groups of students in a classroom or recreation centre setting. They are also played between siblings or between parents and children, in the home. These activities stimulate dialogue and teach a variety of concepts related to physical activity and nutrition.
