The 4 Healthy Moves
Have a blast while caring for those you love by making these 4 Healthy Moves part of all your summer celebrations. Your kids will learn healthy habits as they eat smart, exercise, and have fun. 

Choose drinks with less added sugar. Teach kids how to recognize drinks that are high in added sugars. Encourage them to choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. Kids should drink 2 to 3 cups of low-fat (1%) or fat-free milk a day, depending on age. 

Offer kids fruits and vegetables during meals and snacks. Try new fruits and veggies together as a family. 

Help kids discover fun ways to stay busy and active this summer. Limit TV and video game time to no more than 1-2 hours a day. 

Kids need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day. Help your family get moving with games, dancing, and more.
