Healthy Children - March 2018

Celebrating Healthy

Parties and celebrations don’t have to be centered around food.

Plan parties around activities such as:

  • Ice skating
  • Kickball
  • Swimming
  • Slip ‘n slide
  • Basketball
  • Rollerblading
  • Sledding

Healthy Foods

  • Offer fruits, cut up vegetables and other healthy options along with less healthy treats
  • Always include water in addition to other drinks, consider replacing sugar drinks with 100% juice
  • Present healthy foods in fun, creative ways.

Key Messages:

  • Think outside the box for holidays and birthday celebrations. Move beyond cake and ice cream and plan an activity.
  • Include healthy options such as fruit and vegetables and water instead of juice and soda at parties.
