Healthy Choices, Healthy Children: Simple Steps Your Family Can Take
As parents, we often feel overwhelmed with all the “shoulds” that come our way. But even small changes in the ways we and our families shop, cook, eat, sleep and play can have a significant impact on our children’s health and development.
In a typical week, how often do you and your family sit down to eat a meal together? How common is it for you and your children to get a good night’s sleep – one that allows you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to meet the day? And, on a scale of 1 to 5, how healthy and well-balanced was the food your child(ren) ate yesterday? Reflecting on your answers to those questions, identify three small steps you could take in the coming week to improve how your family is doing on these important elements of healthy living for healthy children.
