If we want our kids to have healthy habits it means we need to have healthy habits. Hopefully that is good news. As parents we lay the foundation of the importance of healthy habits in our everyday lives from outdoor play, to exercise, to eating right, to reading and the list goes on. If we model healthy habits for our kids, those healthy habits will become ingrained and become part of their lives without much effort.
According to a Healthy Habits for Kids article on thingsicantsay.com, "while 70% of moms played outside when we were kids, only 31% of our kids play outside today.". This is a statistic we can change starting today. Show your children how great and fun it is to get outdoors, plant a garden, take a walk, collect cool rocks. It doesn't matter what you do. It only matters that you do it and you enjoy it! Healthy habits will become the norm in our children lives if we make them part of our daily day.
Want a quick guide to starting healthy habits for your kids, parents.com shared a simple guide to model a healthy, happy lifestyle for everyone.
So lets get out there with our kids and start creating those daily healthy habits!
