10 Things You Can Do To Help Your Family Get Healthy Today

When I come across things I figure why not pass them on. Maybe just maybe there will be a little something for you too....

10 Things you can do to help your family get healthy:

1. Eat Fruits / Veggies daily
2. Eat breakfast everyday
3. Go meatless at least 1 day a week
4. Get out and move for 60 minutes every day (think about it. Kids do most of this at school)
5. Turn off the screen. Limit TV, non-homework computer time, phone, and video screen to 2 hours or less
6. Drink water instead of soda, fruit drinks, sports drinks, or juice
7. Eat real food. Make sure you can understand and read a food's ingredient list. Remember some of the healthiest foods do not have labels, like fruits / veggies
8. Eat at least one meal a day with your family
9. Be a health hero and demand that fresh and local fruit / veggies are available at your school and at your local grocery store
10. Parents - tell your children, no matter how old, that you love them frequently and regularly. Youth should know that they are loved just the way they are no matter what their shape or size.
