Chef Solus’ Favorite Tips to Help Kids and Families Stay Active!

  1. Rain or sunshine, turn on your child's favorite music and dance in the living room.
  2. Avoid putting a television in your children's bedrooms
  3. Ask them to decide how they would like to use their 1-2 hours of “screen time”
  4. Let each child take a turn choosing the activity of the day or week
  5. If your child likes to climb, head for the nearest neighborhood jungle gym
  6. Organized sports are great but there are many other activities children can do to be active that are not competitive. Let them select or choose as a family
  7. Keep the computer in a family area.
  8. Limit other sedentary activities, such as text messaging or chatting on the phone
  9. If your child likes to read, walk or bike to the neighborhood library for a book
  10. Celebrate accomplishments with fun activities instead of food or extra TV time
  11. Talk about physical activity as a fun lifelong way to take care of your body and balance your food and energy, rather than viewing it as a chore
  12. Set aside time each day for physical activity
