The Being Me: Promoting Positive Body Image module has been developed to support existing physical activity and healthy eating frameworks and to complement Action Schools! BC’s Classroom Healthy Eating Action Resource (CHEAR) while supporting the Ministry of Education’s prescribed learning outcomes across the curriculum.

Learning outcomes, implementation ideas and resources have been provided – everything you need to get started.
