The purpose of this project was to develop an Intuitive Eating curriculum for high school freshman students. This program aimed to educate high school students on Intuitive Eating principles to encourage a healthier relationship between mind, body, and food, leading to increased self-esteem. Therefore, this program may be used as a preventative measure against disordered eating and obesity.
Based on current research, a curriculum was developed consisting of lecture, discussion, and activity portions to reinforce each of the 10 Intuitive Eating principles. Each lesson concludes with the distribution of parent or guardian education material for the adolescents to share with their family. Pre and postprogram questionnaires were also included.
An expert panel reviewed the curriculum and revisions were made based on their feedback. The program was not pilot-tested for the purpose of this project, but it is recommended to do so before implementation.
