Prioritizing healthy routines helps kids feel better today and gets them on the right track for years to come.

Healthy Behaviors

Set small, achievable, short-term goals to re-prioritize three key areas:

Actividad física

  • Preschool-age children about 3 hours per day of a variety of activities
  • School-age kids and teens at least 60 minutes per day of moderate-to vigorous intensity activity

Nutrición

  • Consume a variety of foods daily, increase intake of vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, low-fat or fat-free dairies, lean vegetable or animal protein, and fish
  • Minimizes the intake of trans fats, processed meats,refined carbohydrates, and sweetened beverages

Screen Time

  • Less is better
  • No more than 1 to 2 hours of TV/computer/video games a day; separating leisure screen time and school screen time.

A healthy routine can help kids feel better, improve mental health and decrease and prevent conditions such as anxiety and depression.
