Promoting Healthy Body Image

This Action provides ways to promote healthy body image acknowledging that the words we use and the places we choose to spend our money reflect who we are.


  1. Write a toy maker and ask them to portray a healthier body image in the production of their toys.
  2. Avoid using words and phrases such as “man up” “be a man,” “don’t be a sissy,” “stop acting like a girl,” "you ____ like a girl,” “act like a big boy,” “girly man,” “wuss,” “real men…”, “its an action figure, not a doll".
  3. Purchase healthy body image toys from places like Lammily.
  4. When purchasing super hero toys be sure to have a conversation with your children about unrealistic bodies and how everyday people can be super heroes too.
  5. Don’t speak negatively about your own self image, especially in front of children. We learn what we live.
