Listen to What Girls Say About Healthy Living

Listening to what girls say has always been an important part of the Girl Scout experience for volunteers. In the last few years, the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) has helped us listen to what girls say on issues of great importance to them—the Internet, emotional and physical safety, and now healthy living. GSRI released a study titled, The New Normal? What Girls Say About Healthy Living, which focused on girls' unique perspectives. For girls, being healthy is as much about emotional well-being as it is about eating well and being fit.

The New Normal research study points to a number of ways volunteers can help girls make positive decisions about their health, whether those girls are beginning Daisy Girl Scouts or entering high school. Here are some ways you can translate the latest Girl Scout research into action:
