21 Tips for a Healthy Family

For the first time, this generation of children is on the fast track to live shorter, less healthy lives than their parents. Childhood obesity is a serious problem in the United States with one in three American children overweight or obese. Pediatricians are diagnosing diseases in children that were once thought of primarily as “adult” diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension. That’s scary and unnecessary.

Start taking control of your families health by gradually improving your nutrition, level of physical activity, reducing screen time and spending more time together as a family (which has a whole host of positive benefits).

Here are 21 family fitness tips to get your family on the right track!

Family Activity Resources

Keeping your family healthy means keeping your family active too. It can be challenging to figure out where to go and what to do to get your family moving.

Whether it's getting outdoors to view wildlife, floating on a river or hiking a trail here are some family activity resources to get you started.

                                

Summer Soups

Although we normally think of soup as Fall and Winter fare there are plenty of Summer soups to cool you down and keep you refreshed.

Chilled Carrot Soup with Fresh Herbs - Easy to prepare, sweet and delicious.

Berry Cold Berry Soup - Strawberries and raspberries combine for a yummy dessert soup.

Fresh Tomato Soup Au Gratin - This soup perfectly captures the taste of tomatoes in season and goes well with homemade croutons.

Walnut Cucumber Gazpacho - This is a light, refreshing, chilled soup that’s very easy to make. It’s perfect for a hot summer day when you don’t want to cook.
