Healthy Kids : Homepage | Primary PDHPE | Scoop.it
Ashley Pladson's insight:

A great resource for teachers when teaching PDHPE. The website is centered around 5 key messages, known as “5 ways to a healthy lifestyle”, these being: Get active each day, Choose water as a drink, Eat more fruits and veggies, Turn off the TV or computer and Get Active, and Eat fewer snacks and select healthier alternatives. Included are information fact sheets, links to interactive teaching resources, as well as information about programs that your class or school could become a part of.
A good first step in finding helpful resources!

Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating | Primary PDHPE | Scoop.it
Ashley Pladson's insight:

This interactive activity, set in"Rainbow Virtual Grocery Store" is designed for students to revise their knowledge on looking at food labels to determine which food is the better option to eat. This would be a good activity to do within your classroom following on from looking at food labels and making judgments included within the Personal Health Choices section of the NSW K-6 PDHPE syllabus.

Go For Your Life: Interactive Lunchbox

Go For Your Life: Interactive Lunchbox | Primary PDHPE | Scoop.it
Try the ‘Go for your life’ Interactive Lunchbox! Simply add drinks, snacks and mains to your lunchbox and weigh up your lunch to see how healthy it really is…
Ashley Pladson's insight:

I love this resource! It's the perfect interactive way for students to be able to see what makes up a good lunch box. Students/paricipants in the activity select which foods and drinks they want to have in their lunch box and then it weighs it up. This could be followed up with a discussion as to why we need to have a healthy lunch box.

 

Syllabus reference: NSW K-6 "Personal health choices" outcomes.

Food Labelling

Food Labelling | Primary PDHPE | Scoop.it
They say you are what you eat so its no wonder that people want to know exactly what's in their food. Right now a big review's going on into Australia's food labelling laws. It's got a lot of people talking about exactly what information should be on packages at the supermarket.
Ashley Pladson's insight:

What information should be on food packages at the supermarket?

 

This Behind the News video gives students an insight into how food is labeled here in Australia and why it is a big issue for our diet and health. Showing what is included on packages currently as well as offering ideas into what Australia could do to improve our food labeling laws. Concluding by allowing opinion development where students can think about how they believe our food should be labeled, and whether environmental and ethically sourced information should be included in our food packaging.

A good resource to use for Stage 3 within the Personal Health Choices Outcomes.
