Tip of the Day
Get the Whole Family Involved
Regular physical activity can be a fun family affair. This Saturday is Family Health and Fitness Day, the perfect time to get the whole family moving and spend time together. Engaging your child in physical activity at a young age will help them learn the importance of healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
Parents, become healthy role models! Looking for fall activities the whole family can enjoy? Here are some ideas:
- Find a local nature trail or bike path to ride. Bring a cooler packed with healthy and delicious snacks and stop along the way to enjoy a picnic.
- Go apple picking on a cool fall afternoon. Don't forget to pack an extra sweater in case it gets cold.
- Plan a game of flag football or kickball for the family, and you could even invite some of the neighbors over to join.
