All teens will benefit from learning these five “essential habits” based on recent wellness studies from top-ranking universities. Viewers follow Dr. Mohr, a Registered Dietitian and Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, as he explores the five essential habits that promote health: eating a nutritious diet, starting each day with breakfast, exercising daily, getting enough sleep and staying drug-free. Dr. Mohr follows real teens as they demonstrate each of the five strategies. We learn that eating a nutritious diet can be fast and easy; that exercise can come from dancing, bike riding or just about any activity. We visit a sleep lab to learn the consequences of poor sleep habits. Finally, Dr. Mohr moderates a teen forum focused on how substance abuse and smoking impact health. Filled with helpful hints, easy recipes and lots of encouragement, this program will motivate students and set the foundation for life-long good health.
