If you've ever watched your parents taking care of the car, you'll notice that they regularly fill it with gas or sometimes take it to a mechanic. A car also needs to be driven regularly or else it could become rusty and break down. We can think of our bodies in a similar ways ��� like a machine, they need to be regularly exercised and fed in order to work well. There are many ways to exercise our bodies. We can do this through group sports like football or basketball, or individual sports like running or swimming. We can also try other activities like playing tag with friends or walking the dog. Sometimes the whole family can be active together by going for a hike to explore an outdoor area. When it comes to food, there are many delicious dishes that are simple enough for kids to cook. The trick is to pay attention to the ingredients and make sure that they are healthy. For example, instead of eating chocolate chip cookies, try a fruit smoothie. It still tastes great, but fills the body with minerals, fiber, and vitamins, instead of just sugar and fat. The resources here will help provide some inspiration of how you can be active and healthy every day.
