20 Healthy Resolutions for Kids to Follow

Preschoolers

  • I will clean up my toys.
  • I will brush my teeth twice a day, wash my hands after going to the bathroom and before eating and clean up my messes right away.
  • I won't tease the family dog or even a friendly dog, and I will avoid being bitten by keeping my fingers and face away from its mouth.

School-age Kids

  • I will drink milk and water, and limit soda and fruit drinks.
  • I will apply sunscreen before I go outdoors, even in winter. I will try to stay in the shade whenever possible and wear a hat and sunglasses, especially when I'm playing sports.
  • I will try to find a sport (like basketball or soccer) or an activity (like jumping rope, dancing or riding my bike) that I like and do it at least three times a week!
  • I will always wear protective gear – especially a helmet – when bicycling.
  • I will wear my seat belt every time I get in a car. I'll sit in the back seat and use a booster seat until I am tall enough to use a lap/shoulder seat belt.
  • I'll be nice to other kids. It's easier and more fun than being mean, and I'll feel better about myself. I'll be friendly to kids who need friends – like someone who is shy or is new to my school.
  • I'll never give out personal information such as my name, home address, school name or telephone number on the Web. Also, I'll never send a picture of myself to someone I chat with on the computer without my parents' permission.

Teens

  • I will eat at least one fruit and one vegetable every day, and I will limit the amount of soda I drink.
  • I will take care of my body through physical activity and nutrition.
  • I will choose nonviolent television shows and video games, and I will only spend one to two hours each day – at the most – on these activities.
  • I will check to see if I can give away any of my unwanted clothes and shoes to those in need. I will help out in my community – through volunteering, working with community groups or by joining a group that helps people in need.
  • I will wipe negative "self talk" (i.e. "I can't do it" or "I'm so dumb") out of my vocabulary.
  • When I feel angry or stressed out, I will take a break and find constructive ways to deal with the stress, such as exercising, reading, writing in a journal or talking out my problem with a parent or friend.
  • When faced with a difficult decision, I will talk with an adult about the choices I may have.
  • I will be smart about whom I choose to date – and never allow violence to enter into my relationships.
  • I will resist peer pressure to try drugs and alcohol.
