LiVe Well- 8 Healthy Habits for Kids, Teens, and Families
Intermountain LiVe Well Assembly
The 8 Health Habits—The Musical!
MCS Kindergarteners, Elementary, and Middle School students attended Intermountain’s LiVe Well assembly.
The assembly was a fun-filled 45-minute health education show called LiVe—The 8 Healthy Habits Musical!
The Grand Theatre and Corporate Staging Resources brought the excitement of live theater to MCS in hopes
to encourage students to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits. In a mix of drama and humor, performers
spoke to our students hoping to empower them with the skills they need to critically evaluate media messages
and peer group pressures in order to make healthy choices from eating more vegetables and obtaining at least
10 hours of sleep at night.
The first 3 healthy habits revolve around the food and drinks that are put into our bodies:
1. Always east breakfast and make it a healthy one.
2. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
3. Limit –or eliminate sweetened beverages.
Followed by the next two healthy habits revolving around activity:
4. Sit less and limit screen time.
5. Move more.
The final 3 involve sleep and support.
6. Get enough sleep.
7. Eat meals together as a family.
8. Be positive about food and body image.
Wholesome varieties of activity, food, sleep, and support are proven to be crucial to a balanced and healthy
lifestyle. The LiVe Well program is geared toward educating and motivating the younger generations to practice
and incorporate the 8 health habits into their lives.
Our MCS students were, of course, the perfect audience. Our students demonstrated the utmost level of respect
with beautiful live interaction and well thought out responses.
MCS encourages our parents to review with their students the 8 healthy habits and find ways to better
incorporate these practices into their daily routine. Parents may have one of the most powerful roles in helping
to shape a child’s life. Support from parents and/ or guardians is essential to forming habits. Let us try to make
healthier choices for our future generations and ourselves.
