About The Program
Today’s children are faced with a greater number of stresses than previous generations. They also have more unhealthy distractions such as TV, video games, internet, fast food, etc. PHE Canada and AstraZeneca Canada want to ensure that children have the best opportunity for healthy growth and development. At My Best is designed to help give children the knowledge and skills that they need to make healthy choices today and develop lifelong healthy habits. The program also includes a unique take home component to enable participation by the entire family and make learning more meaningful, real and enduring for students.
What Parents Are Saying
“My daughter’s reaction has been really positive. I’ve seen her grow in many different ways. Starting with the food, I’ve seen her make healthy choices and remind me that I need to make those healthy choices and model her. I’ve also seen that she has been more physical. She wants to get out and ride her bike and I see some development in her emotions – where she’s better able to handle herself, her classmates and then out in the community.”
Julie Ann, Parent
