Being a Healthy Parent
In order to take care of yourself and teach your child to be happy and healthy, be sure to take care of your own health:
Nutrition is an important way to stay healthy.
- Fruits and vegetables
- Healthy snacks
- Eat small portion sizes
Exercise & recreation are life-long ways to increase well-being.
- Help control your weight
- Prevent diabetes and other chronic diseases
- Establish lasting good habits
- Don't forget - learn swimming safety
Get regular medical and dental checkups.
Always demonstrate and encourage motor vehicle safety.
Get enough sleep. Your health and ability to manage your household begins with a good night’s sleep every night. When you and your children are well rested, everyone has a better chance to succeed in everything they do.
