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!


  • Plan your meals before the week gets busy and get the kids involved with setting the table and preparing the food. Not only will your kids benefit from better eating habits, your whole family will get the opportunity to speak to each other without any other distractions.

  • If you've got a dog, kicking or throwing the ball for the dog will keep everyone on the move. 

  • Often it is hard to have everyone in the same place for every meal. Try mapping out on the calendar every meal you will aim to eat together this month and stick to it!

  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! To find out more go to the resources section.
