We are going to eat right, get active, straighten up and fly right.
And as soon as we fail, we feel terrible. We give up.
Instead, resolve small. And easy.
It takes months for adults to change a habit and weeks for kids.
Pick something that isn’t hard to do at all—remember you want everyone to feel like a winner.
Here’s one to try from the 5210 Let’s Go program.
To start easy, go for the 0!
0 is for no sugary drinks.
Kids do best with milk or water.
If your kids get juice, soda or sugary drinks more than once a day, reduce the number of times they drink them. Fruit, with its fiber and nutrients, is best eaten.
If 0 sugary drinks is too hard, pick something that’s easy for you and your kids.
