What Food Means to Us

What Food Means to Us

If you feel you have a complicated relationship with food - we feel you on that. These days you can’t scroll through instagram, turn on the TV, or even go outside without hearing about the newest diet fad or trendy “superfood” we must consume NOW (cue the eye roll). It’s hard out here for a well-rounded, body-positive woman!

Week #3 in our 12-week curriculum is designed to combat this harmful commentary and teach students about food and what it means to us. We encourage our girls to develop a healthy relationship with food - one that both honors their hunger, their health and their taste buds.

Genetics and Body Diversity

Genetics and Body Diversity

With empowerment through movement and education at the forefront of our strategy, Movemeant Foundation facilitates a body-positive curriculum for middle school girls. Week #2 in our 12-week curriculum is dedicated to teaching students about genetics and body diversity. Our 45-minute session revolves around how genetics play a huge role in our body size. We also explain how internal and external stimuli may change our bodies through time. With this knowledge, we hope to encourage our youth to accept their bodies as they are, freeing them to move with joy.
