10 Healthy New Year’s Resolutions for Kids

The following tips are from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

  1. I will clean up my toys, and keep my room in good order.
  2. I will brush my teeth twice a day, and wash my hands before eating and after the bathroom.
  3. I won’t tease dogs, even friendly ones – and keep my hands and face away from their mouths.
  4. I will drink more milk and water, and limit soda and fruity drinks.
  5. I will apply sunscreen before going outdoors.
  6. I will find a sport or activity that I like, and do it at least three times a week.
  7. I will always wear a helmet when bicycling or boarding.
  8. I will wear my seat belt every time I get in the car.
  9. I’ll be nice to others, and friendly to kids who need friends – like someone shy or new to school.
  10. I’ll never give out personal information or pictures of myself to strangers or over the internet.
