On top of a coffee table sits markers and ZBC's Healthy Activity Booklet pages that have been colored.

We’re expanding our pre-puberty materials! In addition to the Girls’ New Puberty resources directed at parents/caregivers, we now have an activity booklet for girls (and all kids) ages 5+. Download and print our Healthy Activity Booklet: Being Healthy is About Feeling Our Best!

The booklet promotes lifelong health and wellness by providing healthy action ideas to color and asking girls to draw what they like to do. There’s also a bingo activity at the end that encourages girls to follow some of the actions suggested. Topic areas include moving more, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and limiting exposure to chemicals. While it was made with girls in mind, it is not exclusively for girls. All kids who snap a picture of their favorite completed page and email it to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Are you wondering why a breast cancer organization is focusing on health promotion for young girls? More girls than ever before are starting puberty prior to age 8, and early puberty is a lifetime risk factor for breast cancer. Furthermore, girls' health while breasts are developing can impact later breast cancer risk. By adopting healthy behaviors before puberty, girls may be less likely to start puberty early and continue healthy habits throughout puberty and beyond. Read our blog posts Breast Cancer Risk Reduction and ZBC’s Girls’ New Puberty Campaign and Why We Focus on Girls’ Health Before and During Puberty to learn more. You can also download our ebook for adults: Guide to Building a Healthy Future For Young Girls
