 How can families encourage healthy living? 

 Encourage your  child to be active at least 60 minutes a day.

  • Encourage your child to ask questions regarding nutrition.
  • Encourage your child to eat fruits, vegetables and very little sugars.
  • Communicate to your child that you expect them to do well in physical education.
  • Teach your child by being active with them.
  • Provide access to parks, camps and club activities.
  • Talk about health news and issues during meals, while in the car, or anytime!
  • Teach your child that their math, writing, and reading are all skills that are used in physical education too.
