RECIPE FOR HEALTH: TIP OF THE WEEK
Create a calendar

DECEMBER'S FOCUS:

Stress - The hustle and bustle of the holiday season - on top of everything else a busy family is juggling - can create stress. Studies show that increased stress impacts children's health including making them more susceptible to illness and causing poor sleep. This month, focus on reducing stress and increasing holiday joy.

December 25 -31

Friends
While friendships often bring kids happiness and joy, they can also be a big source of stress when disagreements happen. Check in with your kids regularly to make sure you know who they're hanging out with and how they feel after spending time together. Ask specific questions like "Who did you sit with at lunch?" or "What did you do at recess?" Daily check-ins will help you recognize issues with friends or bullying issues at school.

Dean Medical Group and SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital - Madison are teaming up with our Time for Kids partner WISC-TV3 to focus on a year-long campaign to help families discover their recipe for health. By making small health changes over the year, we can make a lasting impact on our health together.

Through "Time for Kids: Recipe for Health" we will provide families and community members with easy "ingredients" that work together to create a lasting "recipe for health". From getting better sleep to eating healthier and getting more exercise, there are small, achievable changes you can make in your everyday routine to create lifelong healthy habits.

Throughout the year, watch for informative stories, weekly tips and events that’ll help you create your family's ideal recipe for health.
