Get Started on Better Family Health

Family Health: Getting Started

The first thing to start with is talking to your children. Explain why healthy behaviors are important. Then set specific daily goals that don’t focus on weight, but on healthy behaviors, like a specific number of steps on a pedometer or a number of vegetable servings. Goals can be different based upon each child’s needs, but be sure not to single out a child who is overweight. Normal and underweight children will benefit from establishing healthy eating and exercise patterns too.
