Available in either English or Spanish, Healthy HomeStyles helps parents you work with raise happier, healthier, and safer kids. It includes a series of Parent Guides that give quick tips and fun ideas from other parents, along with information from experts, to help make small but effective changes to create healthy lifestyles for families.
Parents choose one Guide per month over a period of 10 months and decide on simple, easy changes to make. The tips in the Guide can help any family, even those with busy lives and tight budgets! It takes only 10-15 minutes to read each Guide.
Topics include such things as: eating together as a family, rethinking beverage choices, dealing with picky eaters, food safety, washing hands correctly, promoting adequate sleep and trading TV time for active play. Families track their progress on Goal Trackers to help make healthy habits a reality!
