Resources for parents
Family centered well-being coaching with registered dietitians
Sharecare well-being coaches are trained to support family-centered coaching by tailoring each session to focus on helping family members achieve a healthy weight, addressing picky eating, planning healthy dinners and more. Learn how you and your family can increase activity, eat more fruits and vegetables and reduce sedentary time (and how to make it fun for kids). If appropriate, your coach can refer you to a Sharecare Registered Dietitian.
Creating a healthy lifestyle for your family
As parents and caregivers, you play an important role in making healthy choices for your family but also teaching kids to make healthy choices for themselves. Be Well SHBP focuses on improving family well-being and reducing childhood obesity by providing resources and tools for parents, children and schools. By taking advantage of the Be Well SHBP tools and resources, you are taking the first step to making the healthy choice, the easy choice for you and your family.
There are three important areas to focus on when making healthy choices for you and your family.
- Eating more fruits and vegetables
- Increasing physical activity
- Reducing screen time
What can I do to get started?
Getting started shouldn’t feel overwhelming. Start by following some of the many health topics related to healthy families on the Sharecare platform. Simply go to the Healthy Topic section and scroll through the over 150 topics. Once you follow the topic, Sharecare will do the rest. Look for quick and easy tips within your timeline each day.
Other easy and healthy tips include:
- Take the family hiking or bowling
- Add one healthy vegetable to lunch and dinner each day
- Volunteer for committees to help create safe parks and playgrounds
- Ask your school to provide 30 minutes of physical activity each day for kids while at school or to build a school garden to teach kids about fresh fruits and vegetables
- Buy and serve healthy meals for you and your family
- Go for a walk as a family
Don’t worry about getting it perfect; just taking action is the most important part.*
Resources for schools
Schools play a critical role in a child’s health. By focusing on healthy foods and physical activity in schools, we are helping to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic and provide children with a strong foundation for health and learning. Here are a few ideas to help you and your school get started.
School garden programs offer multiple opportunities for students to gain knowledge and skills regarding food systems and to realize the connections between food and environment, to promote healthy eating.
Physical activity for all students
Adopt a policy that requires 30 minutes of physical activity per day in elementary schools and 45 minutes of physical activity per day in middle and high schools.
