Keeping your kids healthy


Here’s how to start your kids off with some good health habits. Make family exercise outings a regular and mandatory activity. Take a family bike trip. Play a family game of touch football. Take everyone swimming or just run a race in the yard or a park.



. Encourage hobbies. Most kids complain about being bored. Keep your kids engaged. Playing a musical instrument, taking karate lessons, playing on a sports team or even just taking them to the library can be a good thing.

. Let ’em run. Many of the activities kids want to do are sedentary. You may need to encourage or enforce periods of physical activity. Surfing the Net and playing computer games won’t help your children keep physi-cally fit. Encourage them to play tag, Frisbee, kick the can—anything that keeps them moving.

. Don’t put children on a diet. Instead, serve healthy meals ands snacks. Pack their lunches so that they aren’t dining on chips and candy bars at the school cafeteria.
