Three healthy habits to start this spring

Spring is time for new beginnings and I can't think of a better time to make healthy changes. Here are three simple steps you can take to improve your family's health.

1. Add one vegetable and/or fruit serving to every meal — find creative ways to do it such as adding bananas to breakfast cereal or tomatoes to a sandwich, etc.

2. Reduce screen time by 30 minutes and instead add 30 minutes of exercise — take walks together, ride bikes, dance in your living room, etc.

3. Eat dinner together — multiple studies have shown that this simple act decreases anxiety and stress, teaches good nutrition habits and reduces obesity later in life.
