It’s that time of year again, children are heading back to school. As you and your child transition back to school, we’ve pulled together diet-free back-to-school resources to support you and your student.
Have you seen our downloadable, customizable school letters that we made with the National Alliance for Eating Disorders? Unfortunately, diet culture shows up in schools, because schools are a part of our larger culture. Teachers, parents, and school administrators are not immune to diet culture messages. These letters are ready to support you when you need to send some information explaining the harm of dieting and weight focused messaging. Just download, customize one of these letters, and advocate! These are the perfect diet-free back-to-school resources to have on hand!
In addition to our letters, there are many other diet-free back-to-school resources to support diet-free classrooms.
We believe nutrition education needs to be developmentally appropriate and free of diet culture. These podcasts and blog posts provide information on supporting your school and children’s teachers towards this goal.
Sports and Activities Back-to-school also means back to activities! These podcast episodes and blog posts
are packed with information about how to support your child in their activities this fall, and important addition to your diet-free back-to-school resources.
Middle, High School, and College Students
Do you have a teenager? The teen years are full of transitions, boundary-pushing, social media, and independence. These podcast episodes provide you with many perspectives on how to support your teen as they transition back to school.
Packing School Lunches
Back-to-school means back-to-packing lunches! Neither one of us love this job, but we try to keep it simple and quick. We have tons of resources to support you in taking the dread out of lunch packing!
