Become Healthier

Good nutrition helps protect against some health problems like obesity.  Becoming healthier isn't just about eating healthy - it's also about physical activity.  What you eat and drink and your level of physical activity.  what you eat and drink and your level of physical activity are important for your own health, and also for your child's health.  Your children watch what you do more thatn they listen to what you say.  For example don't just tell your child to eat thier vegetables - show them that you eat and enjoy vegetable every day.

Active parents tend to raise active children.  Make active play fun for the whole family.  Let your child help plan the fun.  Start by doing what you can, at least 10 minutes at a time.  Every bit adds up.  Include 2 1/2 hours of physical activity each week - children need at least 60 minutes each day.
