5 Tips for a Healthy, Happy Family

Get moving as a family.

Not only does physical activity help with weight management, but it can boost self-esteem and encourage family bonding. Kids, especially those struggling with their weight, like the acceptance they feel as part of a team. Plan hikes, go for family bike rides, toss a ball around in the backyard, join exercise classes together, follow along with exercise videos — anything goes! Take turns choosing activities; in no time at all, the whole family will look forward to enjoying these fit, fun outings.
