Healthy Food, Healthy Mind, Healthy Body: Mind and Body Connectedness


In this unit, students will learn new skills that connect social and emotional learning and the practice of healthy eating; lessons will ask students to identify their feelings and emotions, reflect on how a particular food makes them feel and why (i.e. calm, energized), how they feel when hungry vs. full, and how a healthy diet influences how they feel. These lessons meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Health Education Standards (CDC NHES), and other frameworks.
