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 to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.

  • Get your little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • Time spent looking at a screen generally means time not spent exercising or connecting with your family - and with so much technology around it's easy to lose track of time. Try allocating specific time periods for media use - preferably not during daylight hours when you can be active outdoors instead - to limit your family's screen time.

  • Make a pledge to limit your family’s screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.

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