A Positive Start to the New Year

 

Each New Year brings with it New Year’s resolutions and an opportunity to make positive changes in our lives.  This year, think about how you can be a positive role model for your child and help them develop healthy attitudes and habits that will last a lifetime.

Focus on being active and eating well.

  • Add physical activity into your daily plans. Make it a family event and let your children choose the activities that they would like to try.
  • Encourage your children to turn off the TV and head outdoors to play instead.
  • Include your kids in planning, shopping for, preparing and serving meals; visit familykitchen.ca for tips.
  • Role model positive eating habits by eating meals together as a family. Visit eatrightontario.ca for more tips on creating a positive home eating environment.
