Challenge your family to get into life

Reduce the temptation of electronic media and put your smartphone or laptop in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight for an hour and see if you can keep it up. It’s hard for children to remember not to touch.
Make time this week to sit at the table at least once a day to eat a meal together. Some families might find breakfast the best time for this, while for others dinner time is when everyone tends to be home. Just sitting, talking and connecting with your family can be beneficial for your health.
Get all the family to tell their digital and real-life friends and family which night is your no screen night, then if they see you online they can remind you of your commitment.
Stage a ‘Superchef Kids’ event at home. Make chef hats and supervise as the kids run the kitchen. You’ll connect with your kids while they have fun and learn about healthier eating choices.
Try having a TV free Friday where instead of watching TV you do something together as a family or with extended family or friends.
