A walk a day
A daily family walk is a great way to get your child - and you - moving. Some families take a walk after dinner. Others plan a morning walk on the weekends. For parents who are home after school, that's often a great time to walk.
Figure out the best time for your family's schedule, and use the time to walk and talk - you'll be helping everyone get healthier, and you'll be spending special time together. Make the walk more fun by mixing it up: walk one block and skip for the next, or alternate walking fast and slow. You can even sneak in some learning time on your walk. For example, have your child count how many trees you pass or read the signs along the way.
