Use common and respectful language to talk about healthy behaviours (e.g., habits, choices, actions).
Communicate observations of what "healthy" and "unhealthy" looks like, sounds like, and feels like.
Ask questions and seek answers about healthy/unhealthy behaviours and opportunities.
Recognize that making healthy choices can be difficult at times.
Illustrate the importance of basic daily behaviours (e.g., washing hands, brushing teeth, eating fruits and vegetables, wearing sun screen and sun protective clothing, being physically active, playing, drinking water, respecting other living things) for good health.
Determine the daily healthy behaviours that can be performed individually and those that may need support (e.g., washing hands on own, applying sun screen with support, smudging with support).
Recognize daily opportunities for demonstrating healthy behaviours (e.g., drinking water as a thirst quencher, walking on the sidewalk, flossing teeth, helping others).
Discuss a variety of healthy behaviours over which one has control (e.g., brushing teeth, being active, engaging in quiet time, seeking shade).
Consider opportunities to access support for healthy behaviours (e.g., recess time provides opportunities to play and be physically active, a trusted peer walks with you to school which provides safety and friendship).
Examine factors influencing own healthy choices (e.g., allergies, cultural traditions, money, family habits, fear).
