Health Tip: Keep Your Family Moving

(HealthDay News) -- A family that exercises together is healthier together, so think of fun ways to make every member of your family more active.

The Letsmove.org website suggests these tips for a more active family:

  • Provide children with toys that promote physical activity, such as jump ropes, balls and kites.
  • Encourage students to join sports teams.
  • Take a family walk around the block after eating, skip the elevator in favor of the stairs and walk to school together a few times a week.
  • Don't allow a TV in your child's room, and limit how much TV your child can watch. When the family does watch TV, set a rule that members can't sit still during commercials.
  • Create a family fun day, including a trip to the park or swimming pool, or a bike ride.
  • Offer rewards for being active.
