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.
