Think Healthy Thoughts

Yum!  Don't you want to dive on in?
Now, I am probably the last person who should write about this (if you have been reading along, you know I have an undying love for cookies and must have at least one a day - who am I kidding, make that two a day) but it is a new year, and it is time to make some changes.  January is National Staying Healthy Month and if you haven't already made a resolution to be healthier this year, then now is the time to make the commitment and become a happier, healthier you!  And I am not talking to just the adults out there - kids need to learn just what foods to eat, how to stay active, and how to maintain healthy hygiene practices as well.

Me when I try to lift anything other than a cookie.
As a family, you can really make a difference in how everyone feels, thinks, and looks just by taking
a few small steps to change your daily routine.  And boy, do we have the resources to help you out!  Start out by taking a walk to the library.  Kids can then find books here on nutritious and delicious recipes, fun exercises, and tips for great hygiene.  Just carrying all those fabulous books home will strengthen those muscles!  And the more you do as a family, the easier it will be fore everyone to get on board.  Cook something up from one of your library cookbooks as a family and sit down together to taste it.  And guess what!?!  Anything that you are reading counts towards your minutes for the Winter Reading Program - Catch a Dragon by the Tale!  How about that?!?  Read, get healthy, and earn minutes to win prizes from the library.  Well, I don't think it can get much better than that!  So what are you waiting for?  Pull on your walking shoes and get on down here to the Roselle Public Library and start staying healthy this month!
