Body Image parent pack and teaching resources available


Developed to align with (Equalities Minister) Lynne Featherstone's campaign on Body Confidence. This campaign looks at the portrayal of people in the media - including the preference for the use of certain body types and its impact on young girls and boys.

Aimed at 6-11 year olds the Body Image Parent Pack aims to help promote positive self-esteem among children, by encouraging parents and children to think critically about the images they see in the media and understand that they are aspirational and not necessarily achievable.

Media Smart has developed a number of free teaching resources for 6-11 year olds to help them think critically about the media and advertising they see around them on an everyday basis.
