Happy New Year! Have you thought about your New Year’s resolutions yet? At Dairy Council of California, we have tools and tips to start the new year off with your health in mind. Below are some nutrition and physical activity ideas to help you get started making 2023 the best year ever.
a. Set an alarm: If you work from home, try setting an alarm on your phone to remind you to take walking breaks or lift some weights.
b. Exercise with others: Join a dance class, a gym or a sports team that can help you to stay motivated and accountable.
c. Be active as a family: Go to a park to play kickball, have a dance party at home or take a walk together around the neighborhood or at the beach.
Additionally, try making New Year’s resolutions as a whole family! Dairy Council of California has a Wellness Prescription Pad available to download at no cost that can help give you more ideas such as eating together as a family more often. You can attach it to your refrigerator to remind you daily of your goal.
Finally, stay tuned for the new and exciting Let’s Eat Healthy Together broadcast series. As part of the Let’s Eat Healthy Initiative to elevate the health of children and families through the pursuit of lifelong healthy eating habits, Dairy Council of California has partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District, KLCS Public Media PBS and food educator Chef Monti Carlo to create 12 nutrition education episodes airing weekly on KLCS-TV starting January 2023. Join Chef Monti and Dairy Council of California on a nutrition adventure that explores many of the topics above as well as agriculture and cooking. Get ready to learn with your family and be inspired to eat healthy together!
