Eat Right: Lunch together! Whether or not you work outside the home, plan a brown-bag lunch with your kids that’s nutritious (and delicious!). Join your child at lunch time to eat together. If you can’t break away from work, pack the same lunch for you so everybody has the same lunch that day. Or you can pick a favorite family meal and brainstorm together how to make it healthier. If possible, do both!
March is that crazy month when one minute it’s nearly summer, and the next it can hearken back to January. Get ready for the change of temps by finding a new outdoor activity to try. Maybe it’s hiking in a new-to-you park—and if there’s snow, rent snowshoes! (Note: up-and-down temps generally make walking on a lake not terribly safe.)
As winter activities wind down and spring ones haven’t started, set some time aside for family time. Maybe it’s a Saturday spent in your pjs, playing board games or cards, and ending with a family movie night. Use some of the healthy snacking ideas in the link above to enjoy while lounging.
