We continue our series promoting healthy behaviors to be implemented and tracked for an entire month (and hopefully beyond). In August, the behavior to implement is to choose foods high-fiber foods. Fruits, vegetables and whole grain foods are all high in fiber and should be eaten daily. It’s important to make fresh fruits and vegetables easily accessible for kids to grab when they are looking for snacks. Remind children (and it may be a good reminder for you) how important fiber is to healthy digestion. To assist with this reminder you can download and print your free August Behavior Tracking Sheet and use in your home, summer camp setting, or childcare center to encourage and track behavior change.
