A new resource for teachers, that aims to improve the health and well-being of young people has been launched by Legal and General with MEND.
Your Life, Your Choice is an educational teaching resource for 11-14 year olds that aims to encourage young people to evaluate information on healthy lifestyles, make informed judgments and reflect on the consequences of their actions now as well as in the future.
One hundred copies of Your Life, Your Choice will be made available free of charge to teachers on a first-come-first-served basis.
Graham Precey of Legal and General says, "With one in three school children overweight or obese, it is important to educate our young people about healthy lifestyles."
Your Life, Your Choice contains lesson plans, teacher resources and student worksheets, plus DVD clips to complement each session and help engage students.
