BBS: BONE-BUILDING SCALE
is not an easy concept to teach to tweens, as the information can be
quite complex. We have worked with teachers to keep the content simple
and give students all the information they need to effect long-term lifestyle
several rounds of testing with kids in classrooms, we developed the Bone-Buildling Scale.
The BBS is used throughout the program to help students understand
which specific foods and activities are best for building strong bones.
The BBS scale comes
in handy when trying to explain the difference between things that
are good for you, and things that are good for you AND good for your
bones. For example, in the first lesson of the program, kids learn
that some foods, like carrots, might be good for your body
in general, but do not contain anything that helps build your bones.
