Monkey See, Monkey Do: How to Model Healthy Habits for Your Kids!

Kids’ habits are often patterned after their parents, so the best way to get your kids healthy is to stay healthy yourself. It’s also a great opportunity to have some family time. 

  • Dinners made at home often are healthier and have fewer calories than meals eaten out.
  • Around the dinner table can be a great place to promote mental health, too, by connecting as a family. 
  • And try exercising as a family. Take a walk together, go to a park or ride your bikes. Just 20 minutes a day can make a huge difference!

Here's to getting healthy – as a family!
