The Love Your Body Workbook is a guide for parents and teachers to start the conversation with young children about food and feelings. This curriculum is a companion to the children's book Full Mouse, Empty Mouse by Dina Zeckhausen, PhD (EDIN's founder). The purpose of the Love Your Body Handbook is to encourage attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that contribute to a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. The handbook has 4 lessons, which we recommend completing during one week, Love Your Body Week.
Lesson 1: Understand Your Body
Lesson 2: Listen to Your Body
Lesson 3: Respect Your Body
Lesson 4: Move Your Body
