Incorporating healthy habits in your everyday routine by making it fun. With games, songs and even showing them that you are participating in it as well. We are showing them that we are being a good role model.

Dining and asking kids to learn and describe the food can help them feel more comfortable and have fun with it too

You can make healthy habits fun by creating games, songs, call and responses, dances etc. You can also make them more fun by being a part of the experience by participating yourself, some kids think its fun and cool to do and act as the adult in the room does.

You can make it fun by singing, playing a game showing them how good it is for them to grow up.

Learning about the types of food that are good and bad for you, like the food pyramid making a game out of it, cutting fruits and foods into fun shapes and learning about fun fitness games.

USING SONS CAN HELP ENGAGE CHILDREN TO CONSUME HEALTHY SNACKS OR EVEN BY EATING WITH CHILDREN AND SHOWING THEM THE IMPORTANCE OF NUTRIENTS PRESENTED IN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

By cutting healthy foods into fun shapes, using the play kitchen to talk about how yummy the foods are, and using funny voices to talk about how yummy they are.

You can make healthy habits fun by incorporating fun colors and shapes and making it like a game to keep the child engaged.

Some ideas for making healthy habits fun would be:
do theme food (colors, shapes, etc.)
play active games that get their bodies moving (simon says, freeze dance, etc).
make up songs about healthy activities and sing them while doing those activities.

We make healthy habits into a game to make it fun. We also sing songs about the things we should be doing like washing our hands and brushing teeth.

Absolutely! You can add fun by using music or movements to make the activities enjoyable

Healthy habits can be fun by making it into a silly song with possible actions to go along with it. Or make rhyming words for the healthy habit. Also by laughing and smiling!

Sing a song and dance, play music while they clean up.
