Healthy New Year’s Resolutions
The following resolutions are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Kids, 5 to 12 years old:

•I will drink reduced-fat milk and water every day, and drink soda and fruit drinks only at special times.
•I will put on sunscreen before I go outdoors on bright, sunny days. I will try to stay in the shade whenever possible and wear a hat and sunglasses, especially when I’m playing sports.
•I will try to find a sport (like basketball or soccer) or an activity (like playing tag, jumping rope, dancing or riding my bike) that I like and do it at least three times a week! et when riding a bike.
•I will wear my seat belt every time I get in a car. I’ll sit in the back seat and use a booster seat until I am tall enough to use a lap/shoulder seat belt.
•I’ll be friendly to kids who may have a hard time making friends by asking them to join activities such as sports or games.
•I will never encourage or even watch unkind behavior, and will join with others in telling meanies to stop.
•I’ll never give out private information such as my name, home address, school name or telephone number on the Internet. Also, I’ll never send a picture of myself to someone I chat with on the computer without asking my parent if it is okay.
•I will try to talk with my parent or a trusted adult when I have a problem or feel stressed.
•I promise to follow our household rules for video games and internet use.

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2015!
