Eating healthy and being active can be difficult because you spend much of your day in school or work and eat meals that are prepared by others. Be a Health Champion by becoming more involved in your meals and school or work activities.

Here’s a checklist to help you work healthy habits into your day.

❏ Each night, pack a healthy lunch and snacks for the next day.
❏ Go to bed at a regular time every night to recharge your body and mind. Be sure to turn off your phone, TV, and other devices when you go to bed.
❏ Eat breakfast.
❏ Walk or bike to school if you live nearby and can safely do so.
❏ Drink water throughout the day. Avoid sodas and other high-calorie drinks.
❏ Between classes, stand up and walk around, even if your next subject is in the same room.
❏ If a recess is allowed at your school or work, be sure to take a walk, jump rope, or play an active game with friends.
❏ Be active in gym classes.
❏ At lunchtime, eat the lunch you packed. If you have lunch money, spend it on healthy options. Avoid sodas, chips, and candy from the vending machines.
❏ Stay active after school or work by joining a sports team or dance group. Walk the dog or jump into a neighborhood pick-up game of basketball, soccer, or softball.
❏ Be involved in the food choices made in your home. Help make dinner and eat with your family.
❏ Save screen time for after your activities and limit it to less than 2 hours.
