Whether they're hiking, trying a new sport, or preparing tasty, nutritious snacks, Girl Scouts enjoy many fun ways to lead healthy lives. Health and fitness have been part of Girl Scouting since girls ran foot races in 1912!
Through the National Program Portfolio—Leadership Journeys and The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for girls at all levels—girls develop leadership and build skills they can use now and in the future. Healthy living activities are woven throughout the Girl Scout program in varied ways to provide girls with choice and flexibility.
Girl Scouts has developed three "healthy habits" booklets for volunteers to use in conjunction with their Journey Adult Guides. The booklets will help guide girls on their Journey as they learn to lead active, healthy lifestyles. Through the use of these free resources for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors, Girl Scout volunteers and families can guide girls in fun, easy ways to achieve "energy balance" through awareness of:
Energy In: the calories you get from eating and drinking.
Energy Out: the calories you burn from physical activities.
Healthy Habits booklets are to be used in conjunction with Adult Guides in the It's Your Planet—Love It! series. To purchase copies of Journey Adult Guides and Journey books for girls from all three Journey series, go to:
