August is Kids Eat Right Month and to celebrate we'll be posting fresh ideas on healthy eating for kids. But before we get things started, here's a crash course into Kids Eat Right Month.

What is Kids Eat Right Month?

“Kids Eat Right Month™ is the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' and the Academy Foundation's chance to highlight the fight for our children's healthy future. Kids Eat Right Month™ emphasizes what makes Kids Eat Right such an important program, focusing on smart shopping, healthy eating and active lifestyles for every age group from infant to teens.”

How can I help celebrate Kids Eat Right Month™?

You can help celebrate by setting an example for the whole family and creating a healthy environment at home. Get active as a family by enjoying 60 minutes of active play each day. Enjoy family meals together and get children involved in planning and cooking healthy meals together.

Remember, any little bit helps, so start small and build your way up until your whole family is enjoying a healthy lifestyle which will carry on into adulthood.
