Dr. Daisy & Co is proud to introduce our first-ever
Non-Diet Health Class
Why are we teaching a health class?
Because the curriculum of Middle and High School health class promotes dieting and is taught by non-licensed health professionals. In fact, many of our teen clients feel like their disordered eating started by things they learned in health class at school! So, we are teaching a NON-DIET HEALTH CLASS of our own.
Teens will learn the truth about health and wellness within a non-diet, weight neutral, gender and neurodiverse inclusive framework. Our 4-week class is taught by the DMV’s most esteemed Registered Dietitians at Dr. Daisy & Co. Not to brag, but we work hard to be this awesome.
Your kids will have the opportunity to learn, share,
ask questions, and create a custom plan to be the best version of themselves now and for years to come.
Nutrition and Health Topics covered:
WEEK 1: Nutrition 101 - Myth Busters! Teens will learn nutrition fundamentals - what their body really needs and why.
WEEK 2: Beyond Body Image - We will talk about body image beliefs and cultural influences. Teens will learn how to build a better body image so that they can honor their body with kindness and respect.
WEEK 3: Movement and Exercise - How much is enough? What kind of exercise is best? We will answer these questions and more during our exercise power hour!
WEEK 4: Self-Care Skills - Learn the tools and healthy habits your teen needs for mind-body self-regulation. Self-regulation is hard! Your teen will create a custom plan with activities and self-talk strategies that work for them.
When: New class starting 2023
