Achieving a healthy and active lifestyle for you and your family is easier than you think. Your family can make better choices and develop healthy habits using these simple tips:
Stock your home with healthy options
Avoid filling your fridge with sugary foods, drinks and processed items. Create a meal plan using whole grains and veggies that are in season. Model healthy eating around your children and encourage them to try healthier alternatives such as frozen yogurt and fruits for sweets.
Make exercise fun
To motivate your family to get moving, make exercise fun. Walk, bike or hike around your neighborhood instead of driving. Participate in family group exercise classes. Play sports and games together to add variety to your workouts.
Reduce screen time
Engage more in conversation and fun as a family by reducing screen time. Turn off the TV during family meals times. Present other entertainment options to your family such as sports, playing outdoors, the library, playing board and card games and more.
