Simple swaps can be fun: whole grain instead of white flour, fruits/veggies and dip instead of chips and dip, baked chips instead of fried, or baked potatoes instead of french fries.

MOVE YOURSELF
Challenge yourself. Discover your strengths: Trying new moves is a challenge but a ton of fun! It might take a few tries, but once you get the hang of something...you'll discover new strengths/skills you didn't know you had!

Play your way... everyday: Just 60 minutes of active play every day helps your body build muscles, keep bones healthy, release stress, learn better, and sleep better. so, find what you like to do and get moving!

Try teamwork! Look for ways to involve friends and family. It can make getting active more fun!

Simple swaps help you score: stairs instead of the elevator, stretching or moving in front of the TV instead of just sitting…little swaps add up to help you be your best!

Find what you like to do and then...Get up and get moving! even small actions every day can add up and help you be your best!
