5 Fun Ways to get Your Whole Family Active1. Spend the day at the zoo.
5. Go to the trampoline park.This is the ultimate fun way to get your family active. Do you know how many calories you can burn jumping up and down for an hour? I actually don't, but I'm sure it's a lot! As far as demonstrating healthier eating habits, I've recently discovered how much I enjoy MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls. I was at Walmart the other day picking up stuff for my little boys' birthday party, and saw these Chik'n Pot Pie and Italian Sausage Bake Veggie Bowls in the freezer section. Way too often, I'll get busy and forget to eat. Then I end up super hungry later and reach for something I shouldn't (like a cookie or whatever is close by and ready to eat.) Since I knew I was going to run into this scenario, I wanted to make sure I had something convenient, quick, easy and a healthier option. As I was scrambling to get everything finished for the birthday party this past weekend before my guests arrived, I realized I was STARVING! Instead of breaking into the birthday cupcakes, I popped the Italian Sausage Bake Veggie Bowl into the microwave and had a delicious meat free lunch in a matter of minutes. My kids pay a lot of attention to what I'm eating, so I'm really happy for them to see me eating Morning Star Veggie Bowls because they'll want some too. The Veggie Bowls are great for all ages and are not just for vegetarians. So, can I get a high 5 for getting my family into a healthier lifestyle? I hope you enjoyed these fun family activities, and for more inspiration, make sure to check out these posts from some of my fellow bloggers. How are you getting your family active?
