Healthy and Strong, All Day Long
Everyday routines are building blocks for learning healthy habits and reaching developmental milestones.
From morning to night, all the little routines you do with children every day are opportunities to build healthy habits that can last a lifetime! Read this storybook together with children. Each page includes a prompt such as a question or activity suggestion — pause to do them as much as you like. They can help you both engage in meaningful, playful ways around the big ideas in the book.
As you read, talk about how some of children’s daily routines are the same or different. How does each keep them healthy?
