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!


  • 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.

  • 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!

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

  • 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.
