A Healthy Body Often Equals a Healthy Brain

Experts stress that exercise, good diet help maintain memory as much as mental challenges do

Health Tip of the Day

Make Mealtime Family Time

  • Divide tasks, so Mom alone is not responsible for preparing food, serving, and washing dishes.

  • Don't discuss things that would embarrass or humiliate family members. Certain subjects children may want to discuss might require more one-on-one listening. Otherwise, there are no taboo topics.

  • Dinner is a good opportunity to build self-esteem. By listening to what children have to say, you are saying, "I value what you do; I respect who you are and what you're doing."

Healthy Living

Nutrition
Could your diet use a nutritional tune-up? A healthful diet has many benefits and it doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
