Families

Healthy eating habits and active lifestyles are important goals for the entire family. Parents, you are the main role models for your children— help your family develop healthy habits together by making small changes the whole family can do, one step at a time.

  • Make mealtime family time—kids who eat regularly with their families are more likely to eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains!
  • Put together a family activity list that doesn’t involve screen time—stick it on the fridge where it can be seen easily.
  • Participate in sports the whole family enjoys or take walks together.
  • Always have water available for kids to drink. Set an example by not drinking soda and sugar-sweetened beverages.
  • Have fun together as a family!
