Be a good role model: Engage your whole family in healthy lifestyle activities- pack and picnic and go to the park, take family hikes and bike rides. Spend time at the pool and outside (and not in the movie theater) during summer. Make grocery shopping for healthy foods fun by involving your kids in the shopping and cooking process. Make activity a part of the daily routine.
