Include oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, strawberries, spinach or broccoli in meals and snacks to provide critical sources of Vitamin C, boosting your children’s immune systems!
2. Begin your day with a healthy breakfast.
Create a consistent eating schedule for your kids and avoid skipping breakfast. A healthy breakfast will give your children the essential nutrients they need for a healthy start to their day.

Now is the perfect time to learn a dance with your child. Film it; then, post it on Tik Tok! Dancing helps improve cardiorespiratory fitness, builds strong bones, and reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression.
4. Build an obstacle course.
Move around your furniture to create an obstacle course in your house or apartment. Add specific mental or physical challenges to keep your kids moving and learning new academic skills.
5. Prepare meals together as a family to encourage healthy eating.
Get the whole family involved in meal planning, preparation and cooking, using this extra time together to teach children about good nutrition and healthy habits.
