Kids and Parents Exercising TogetherWhat a great idea! Staying active is such an important component of keeping kids and adults healthy. A great way for families to incorporate fitness into their daily routine is to exercise together. Now, it doesn’t have to be anything difficult. When the weather is warm, take a half hour walk around the block. Like the teacher in the quote above, carve out small portions of the day where activity takes priority.

Healthy Tip

Meal PlanningMeal-planning is one of the easiest ways to stay on top of a crazy-busy schedule. Devoting a half hour or less to the week’s fare takes all the guesswork out of that famous “what’s for dinner?” question. Another huge plus of meal planning is using the process to introduce new fruits, vegetables and other healthy choices into the rotation each week. Meal planning resources are all over the web, which makes this healthy tip easy to practice. Getting organized also saves you time and money at the grocery store. Take a look at some healthy meal plan resources below.
