Body Image for Children – Fat Is Not A Feeling

Our Registered Nutritionist Andrea Holwegner from Health Stand Nutrition Consulting Inc. speaks about how “Fat is not a Feeling”. She provides tips and tricks for discussing this hot topic with your child and to help them adjust how they respect and perceive themselves. As children age and change they become more aware of their bodies and need to understand that there is no one way to have a body, we all grow and develop differently.

Also, you, as the parent, need to be aware that your children are watching you at all times and mirror your own actions. So, become their role model by showing them what it means to eat a balanced diet, that includes sweets and treats in moderation, and be physically active to encourage your children to be the same.

What Sets Us Apart

Our award-winning curriculum was formed through in-depth research into early childhood learning and development. A blend of play-based (Frog Street) and child-led (Emergent) curriculums, all activities are hands-on, child-guided and exceed provincial early learning frameworks.

Our dedicated and passionate early childhood educators deliver an innovative, engaging and proven curriculum that ignites a love of learning and inspires and encourages individuality in every BrightPath child. Their nurturing and attentive approach offers each child a home-away-from-home experience.

Two-way communication is important. Monthly newsletters, curriculum nights, parent interviews, open houses and our proprietary app (BrightPath Connect™) are designed to increase the interaction between our centres and families.

Children need nutrition to grow in both mind and body. Believing that food choices throughout childhood fuel life long eating habits, our menu is crafted by a Registered Nutritionist and prepared in-house daily and reflects those beliefs.
