10 Ways to Raise Healthier Kids

US News & World Report has a Health feature called “Eat + Run” that gives fitness and diet advice. Last year they published this nice list from dietitian Mitzi Dulan of 10 Ways to Raise Healthier Kids.

The best way to ensure that kids eat well and exercise regularly is to provide a household in which everyone does, and this list hits all the high points, and more:

— Replace refined-flour products with whole-grain products
— Make fast food a rare treat
— Make exercise a family habit
— Get them involved in choosing healthy options
— Eat together as a family

Her tips aren’t just about eating and moving — she also addresses other issues that household habits can support. See the whole article at US News & World Reprot, and more in the series at Eat + Run.
