1. Drink Water
To help us remember to drink more water, I have found it to be helpful to fill a reusable liter-sized water bottle with ice water first thing in the morning for each of us. This way we try to drink all of the water before the end of the day. Setting reminders on my phone has also been very helpful with this!
2. Go for Family Walks
If the weather is cooperating, most nights after dinner, we will go for a family walk at either a nearby park or around our neighborhood. This is such an easy way for us to get in some exercise and plenty of fresh air while spending quality time as a family!
3. Take Our Vitamins
Having a set time of the day to take vitamins makes it easier for us to remember to take them every day. We like to take ours right after eating breakfast every morning, since this may help to fill in any gaps in our nutritional needs throughout the day. I also have a reminder set for giving the kids their L’il Critters vitamins on my phone too! L’il Critters vitamins are chewable and they taste great, plus they are a great alternative to tablets or hard to swallow capsules.
4. Play Together
We try to allow plenty of time for play! During the summer months, we try to take advantage of outdoor play as much as possible: swimming, hiking, biking, playing lots of outdoor games. Even just a simple game of catch, is an easy way to make time for play in a busy family’s schedule!
5. Self-Serve Healthy Snack Tray
To help us with eating healthy, we try to have plenty of fruits and vegetables ready to eat for snacks so they are as convenient as possible. For after school snacks, we have a self-serve lazy susan tray in the refrigerator for the kids that is stocked with pre-cut and washed veggies, cheese cubes, yogurt, applesauce, and other snacks. Having a bowl of apples, oranges, and bananas on the kitchen counter in plain view helps make it easier for us to remember to eat them too!
