Fostering healthy habits

Activity Type Setting Cost Time
No Cost


Challenge your child to develop a new healthy habit (e.g., drinking 8 glasses of water a day) over the course of one week. Help your child pick her new habit and join the challenge with her. That is, pick the same (or your own) health habit to develop over the week. Check in with each other every night at the dinner table. If the challenge is successful, extend it beyond one week (e.g., a month-long challenge) or pick a new healthy habit for the next week.
