Girl Scouts and Together Counts partner to help girls achieve a healthy lifestyle

Learn how Girl Scouts and Together Counts are working to keep girls active and health at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com #HealthyHabits

As a former Brownie and Girl Scout, I’m always thrilled to hear how positive the Girl Scouts continue to be in the lives of today’s girls and young women. I was especially happy to hear that the Girl Scouts of the USA has partnered with the Together Counts Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation to create three booklets on healthy habits for volunteers to use in conjunction with their Journey Adult Guides.

These free booklets provide girls with good advice on leading active, healthy lifestyles. Through the use of the Healthy Habits Journey booklets, Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors, Girl Scout volunteers and families can guide girls in fun, easy ways to achieve an active, healthy lifestyle on their “Journey Through Energy Balance.” Energy Balance means balancing Energy In (the calories you get from eating and drinking) and Energy Out (the calories you burn from physical activities).

You can download and view PDFs of the booklets by clicking on the links here:

To date, nearly 117,000 booklets have been downloaded. It’s been such a successful program that the Girl Scouts of the Nation’s Capital is making Healthy Habits a key part of their “Journey Planners,” a map of activities for each season of the year!  -

Health and fitness have been part of Girl Scouting since girls ran foot races in 1912, so I’m glad to see that the Girl Scouts are continuing to keep girls active and healthy!
