Help your family get active
If you’ve got kids, of course you want to make sure they grow up fit and healthy. But you also know it’s hard to
juggle work, family, and physical activity. Still, setting a healthy example is a good start. So if you’re looking for ways
to get your kids involved, check out these tips.

When it comes to heart health, it’s important that we think not only of our own cardiovascular health but also that of
future generations. A study last year found that obese children and teens have as much plaque in their arteries as
a 45-year-old adult, setting them up for heart disease and other serious health conditions much earlier than their
parents.

If you’ve got kids, of course you want to make sure they grow up fit and healthy. But you also know it’s hard to
juggle work, family, and physical activity. Still, setting a healthy example is a good start; research shows that
parents who are physically active increase the likelihood that their kids will be active as well. So if you’re looking for
ways to get your kids involved check out these tips.

Plan outdoor activities

Set aside one day a weekend to do something active as a family: swimming in the summer, sledding or hiking in the
winter, or biking in the spring and fall. Taking along a picnic lunch—and splurging on some healthy snacks after a
good workout—will help the day go by without a complaint.
