Cowboy Ted here with the Healthy Tip for Kids. Today’s topic is keeping yourself healthy for the holidays.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve are great holidays. Don’t forget to get 60 minutes of physical activity to keep your body strong and healthy. Snow boarding, skiing, ice skating and sledding are great winter activities during the holidays.

Be sure and wash your hands often. You don’t want to spend any of your days away from school – sick in bed.

Meals are a big part of the celebration during the holidays. Hold up your fist, and that gives you a guideline for a proper portion size. Also, try and choose from the five food groups.

If you help with the decorations, be careful. Lots of accidents and trips to the hospital occur during holidays.

Healthy kids are no accident. Enjoy the time away from school and stay safe and healthy during the holidays. For more healthy tips for kids, visit my website at
