Week 6 Challenge: Plan grocery shopping as a family. Have your regular family meeting and review your progress over the past weeks. Discuss the new plan for grocery shopping.
Shop for groceries as a family once or twice a month. Set aside plenty of time so you can review nutrition labels at the store. Have fun doing that. Teach the children how to compare prices and value. Calculate the cost per ounce, pound, etc., and determine which is the best dollar value for the nutrient impact. Make this a family activity so you are not rushing through it. Reduce the amount of soda, fruit drinks, and other sugared drinks that you purchase. In week 4 you should have already cut the amount in half. Continue to drink your allotted amount of water per day.
Exercise: Plan to exercise as a family at least twice this week. Review again the progress each of you is making in daily activity.
