Healthy Family Home
Within the YMCA movement, Healthy Family Home is a website and monthly e-newsletter with tips and tools for parents to create a healthier home environment with particular emphasis on eating healthier, getting more physical activity, and spending more time together as a family. You can assess your family's current health practices and get some ideas of how to get started on making them even better.
One of many innovations at Meeting Waters YMCA is how we've taken the Healthy Family Home pillars and translated them into hands-on, skill-building activities within our Family Connection events at our Y-ASPIRE and Y Camp programs. Most Family Connection events now feature experiences in healthy eating (like taste tests), physical activity (fun things families can do right in their yard or neighborhood to get heart rates up) and connecting more as a family (often fun team-building activities done as a family).
Whether your family is enrolled in a Meeting Waters Y program or not, let us know if you'd like some help improving your Healthy Family Home.
