How Can I Get My Family to Be More Active?

As with healthy eating, kids are more likely to want to be active when other family members are active too. Find ways to build physical activity into your family routine. Here are some tips for getting family members together for physical activities.

Plan regular physical activities as family. Take an after-dinner family walk on selected days of the week or schedule a weekly Saturday afternoon trip to the park.

Focus on fun rather than skill. Try activities the whole family can enjoy like biking, skating, playing catch, shooting hoops or just kicking around a soccer ball.

Use fun physical activities as a reward. Go play miniature golf, practice at a batting cage, visit a water park or go hiking.
