Healthy Steps Healthy Lives
The Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives program was developed as a resource for educators to help support your ongoing efforts to teach students about being healthy. Parents, after-school programs, and caregivers can also use the materials in the program. The material on this page is from the 2011 Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives and is linked to MyPyramid. If you are looking for the 2012 version that uses MyPlate please click here.
Designed for grades K-3 and divided into three categories: THINK, EAT, and MOVE Healthy, the Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives® instructional activities provide step-by-step directions to carry out these easy-to-use lessons in your classroom.
