Check out these tools and resources that are available this year to support your students in learning life-long healthy habits!

EASY habits and how to count your streak

Healthy students are better learners! Protecting students’ heart and brain health has never been so EASY.

In previous years, we’ve taught EASY healthy habits in kick-off assemblies across Canada.

This year, we’re encouraging kids to count and share their daily healthy habit streak digitally.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Students pick the healthy habit they want to practice when they register online
  2. Every day the student practices their healthy habit, they can login to count their streak.
  3. Your online school page will total the number of days that participating students have counted towards each EASY healthy habit.

Did you know that healthy habits today help reduce kids’ risk of heart disease and stroke later in life? That’s why it’s so important for students to practice the EASY healthy habits every day.

Between the ages of 6 and 12, kids develop eating habits that may carry into adulthood.

Kids who are active a minimum of 60 minutes daily are more likely to become healthy, active adults.

Children should spend most of their free time away from televisions and technology, being active to keep their heart and brain healthy.

Half your body (including your heart and brain) is made of water so make sure they drink enough to fuel it.
