Al’s Healthy Choices, written by the developers of Al’s Pals, helps children get an early start on a healthy lifestyle. The interactive narrative, together with appealing illustrations, delivers a clear message to young children about choosing to eat healthy foods (fruit and vegetables rather than cookies and chips) and to be active (running and dancing rather than playing hours of video games). Developmentally appropriate strategies align with the 5-2-1-0 practices of eating right, limiting screen time, being active, and not drinking sugary drinks. The 8″x8″ colorful book includes two stickers and activities that reinforce healthy habits.
A complimentary 10-minute lesson that reinforces children’s understanding of the healthy choices concepts taught in this book can be downloaded here.
