Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • Plant a small garden together - the kids will have fun and learn as they decide which plants to grow in the garden they helped to build.

  • Try to reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.

  • Organise a barbecue for your street so everyone can meet their neighbours. For tips on making this happen, see www.neighbourday.org

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.
