Teaching your kids about good food habits and daily physical activity they will be well on their way to a healthy life. Easy to say, but sometimes not so easy to do!
Our busy lifestyles can be hard on our family’s health. Rushing to and from school and work can make it hard to find time to be physically active. We can also slip into the habit of choosing unhealthy snacks or spending our free time watching TV or in front of the computer.
However, these choices can be dangerous for our health and our children’s health – both now and in the long-term. That’s why it’s so important to stop, take stock and make a conscious decision to follow a healthy lifestyle.
Healthy living requires following certain habits and routines each and every day. It’s like a puzzle that you’ve put together. All the pieces are connected and when one piece is missing, the puzzle is not complete. For a healthy life, you do need to eat well, but there are other pieces of that puzzle that need to come together too, such as daily physical activity, washing your hands and bodies, and brushing your teeth.
Use our Health Powered Kids lesson, “Living a Healthy Life” to help your child understand what pieces of the puzzle make up a healthy lifestyle they can learn to love.
