The holidays are filled with excitement and activities, but we can’t forget about the healthy choices your kids have been making all year! We know you work hard to keep your kids healthy and happy, but sometimes it’s hard to keep on top of it all. So here are a few ways you can sneak some healthy choices into the activities you might already be doing this holiday season.

Tuck in for movie night. Holiday movies are perfect for family time! Grab your favorite healthy snack, snuggle up under some blankets, and soak up the festive feelings.

Take in a light show. Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a festive light show. Climb into the car with the people you love, and go to your local light show. If you don’t have one near you, tune your radio to a holiday station and go search your neighborhoods for holiday light displays! It’s a great way to support your community and it gives you the chance to get to know your kids a little more.

Challenge each other in family game night. Whether it’s a run-through of the fit Field Day workout video, a game of Food Bingo, or you’re just playing cards, game night is a great way to encourage some friendly competition. You can even enlist far-away family members to play long-distance charades or chat on a video call!

Find your inner artist. Get creative and let the energy flow through you! Make construction paper snowflakes, create red and green paper chains, color in the Positive Self-Talk Coloring Pages, or finger paint a holiday tree. Put up your artwork around the house to add some festive flair.

Get festive with your food. Your food and snacks can enjoy the holiday spirit, just like you! Add googly eyes, a bell nose, and pipe cleaners to transform an applesauce cup into a reindeer. Slice up a banana, use yogurt to “glue” a strawberry on top, and put two raisins on the front for a Santa-themed snack. You can even try finding only red and green foods in your home to serve as a very merry snack!
