Is being healthy, through nutrition and activity, important to you and your family?

If it is, in what ways? How are you integrating this into your family's lifestyle?

  • Absolutely. We all stay active, eat healthy and my own little insurance plan is giving my family Juice Plus every day.
    None of us have been sick in over a year.

  • ~*Yes*~... we read labels to the foods we buy, we take vitamins, and remain active with our children!

  • Yup, it sure is. We eat well, go for bike rides, walk our dogs in the afternoon, we walk whenever the store (or wherever we need to go) is close by, we play outside with our child instead of watching him play by himself...there's many things you can do :)

  • You bet, even my 91 year old mom joins in the action, I am a vegetarian and although I do make sometimes two meals because my son is a meat eater, they at least try and sometimes like my food. Mom just had hip replacement surgery it has been 3 weeks and she is already on the cane walking my long driveway! I got to the gym everyday, for weight lifting, hubby jogs everyday, my son does the px thingy exercise and my other two daughters have an exercise regime of their own.

  • I got a family of geeks. I feed them well because they are lazy. The 3yo and I go for a hikes a few times a month, plus all the activity that a little boy requires. The hubby and teenager though, lazy.

  • yup. whole grains as often as possible, lots of greens at meals, are active as a family and individuals, fruit and veggies as snacks intead of sweets as often as possible and dessert doesn't happen every night. Brush, floss and rinse 2x's a day. and also are aware of everyone's emotional health, how they are feeling is important.
