10-minute activities. Add short bursts of physical activity – like 10-minute activities into the daily routine of your kids and slowly increase it to meet the goal of one hour every day.

Shorter screen time. Gradually, limit the screen time that the kids enjoy (it includes television, computer, tablet or a video game) and replace it with a fun activity – like cooking or gardening etc.

Healthy treats. Encourage the kids to swap unhealthy treats for healthier alternatives. Making them fun would need creativity on your part. You could involve the kids in it too.
