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!


  • Try using incentives to get your kids to want to eat at the table. Your younger ones could blow out a candle at the end of the meal and older kids could light the candle (under parental supervision).

  • Play word games together. Make up pretend words, "knock knock" jokes or "why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes… anything that makes you all laugh!

  • After school one day, why not have a surprise picnic with the kids and chat with them about their day at school?

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often each family member spends in front of a screen. Using the television, electronic games, portable electronic devices or computers for entertainment can quickly add up.

  • Twirling and running with streamers is a fun, active game the kids will love. Make sure you join in too!
