Raising A Healthy Family

Family eating together

Our topic of the week at H3 is Raising a Healthy Family.  August is here, and kids are soon off to school and back to reality.  Along with the change in schedule, children experience many other changes – in their activity level, eating patterns, peer pressure, and stress levels.  Our guest presenter this week, retired Pediatrician, Dr. Jo Zurbrugg, is introducing the basics of the 5-2-1-0 Health Program for children/families.  The philosophy of these 4 key points can set your family on the right path to a healthy lifestyle. 

 

Test it out on your kids (and yourself!) to see if you pass the test!  Stay tuned for more tips on role modeling a healthy lifestyle!
