Trying to get kids and young teenagers to eat healthy and to stay active isn’t easy for any adult. That’s why the U.S. Department of Agriculture has created a workbook entitled Empowering Youth with Nutrition and Physical Activity for teachers and caregivers to encourage the youth of America to make healthy choices for a healthy future. Topics discussed include facts about diseases brought on by unhealthy behavior, how to incorporate healthy eating into a young person’s daily diet, guidelines for offering healthful meals and snacks, nutritional information about labels, fats, sugars, and how to incorporate safe physical activities into a young person’s life.
