This is a sponsored post from BlogHer and Tropicana.

Let’s face it, it’s tricky to keep the family healthy ALL the time.  We are constantly trying to stay on top of good health whether it’s running around outside, riding bikes or walking through Disneyland…often 🙂  There’s no secret, it’s a challenge, but we try to have fresh fruit and vegetables on hand so we can eat as much as possible.  It’s nice when there is so much goodness packed into orange juice like Tropicana, I know my kids are getting their fruit serving just by drinking a big glass of juice!

    Jenny says:

    My motto in life is – moderation in all things. I think it applies here as well. We definitely try to get outside and play, run, bike ski, explore etc.. everyday and I cook healthy meals most days. But we also like to give our kids the opportunity to make good choices without forcing it on them. I keep mostly healthy foods in the house but we also have treats. My daughters are learning that they feel better when they eat better. We talk about what it means to be healthy and be the best examples that we can for them. However, we love a good doughnut once in awhile and a little bit of chocolate doesn’t hurt either.

    My husband and I do a lot of walking and I try to incorporate as many fresh, whole foods into my cooking as possible. I enjoy making tasty smoothies too, which is a quick and easy way to get servings of fruit and veg.

    Rachel TF says:

    Recently I’ve been trying to make sure that we’re drinking enough every day – mainly water, but also counting juices/milk. Stay hydrated! 🙂

  27. 177

    I always try to have plenty of fruits and veggies in the house, all easily ready to eat. It helps to keep from snacking on unhealthy things!

    Nicole says:

    First and foremost, I make sure we all get plenty of sleep. When we start going to bed too late, and not getting the rest our bodies need, that’s when we start to get sick. My kids need at least 12 hours a night. I know that sounds like a lot, but if they don’t get those 12 hours, they are cranky, and tend to get the sniffles more often.

  32. 182
    Rachel says:

    I try my hardest to avoid having any “junk food” in the house and when I cook, I’m always finding creative ways to sneak in veggies! God love my husband, but he’s like an overgrown child and doesn’t have an ounce of self-discipline when it comes to sweet/salty foods!

  33. 183
    lori says:

    I try to make as many healthy and wholesome home cooked meals as possible with as little “fake” food as possible.

    Rebecca says:

    I try to cook healthy on top of exercising.

    Christina says:

    My 13 month son loves to be on the go, so we play outside a lot and he loves him some plain old water and amazingly he eats his fruits and VEGGIES with NO hesitation. He hasn’t turned away any veggie I have given him and that includes asparagus, peas, and broccoli.

    Tara Hunter says:

    To keep my family healthy, I make sure that we incorporate a variety of fresh fruits and veggies into our daily meals.
    I also try not to keep junk food around.

    Kayla says:

    We get outside in the sun as often as possible & I make my 9-month old daughter homemade food as much as I can.

  39. 189
    Shelly says:

    We drink lots of water so we aren’t drinking our calories! I don’t have unhealthy foods in the house, so we are not tempted. We spend lots of time outside 🙂

    Chrissy says:

    I take the kids for walks and bike rides, send them outside to play a lot, show them that exercise is good for you and can be fun also, and we make good decisions with our food choices.

    mland29 says:

    An apple a day…it really seems to work!

  42. 192

    We eat a lot of whole wheat pasta and brown rice, and I cook a lot of fresh vegetables. I always have fruit with our meals too!

  44. 194
    Judy Jursch says:

    We get lots of Vitamin C from our daily glass of orange juice and we started eating smaller portions and have incorporated more vegetables, less meat.

  45. 195
    Holly says:

    My very active tribe of 11 children always play outdoors either in our backyard, swim or football teams, and we never let them drink soda! Tropicana is a big treat as they usually have milk or water, so we love OJ!

  46. 196
    Danielle says:

    I sneak veggies into everything I possibly can (carrots in spaghetti sauce!) and walk as much as possible. When I can’t walk outside I ride my bike inside while watching the news.!/muffinator/status/57815061867139072

    Val says:

    We ear or attempt to eat healthy limiting red meat and we all paricipate in various forms of exercise.

    Rachel says:

    I try to cook mostly healthy dinners throughout the week, and we will exercise often. My husband and I are both involved in sports teams to make it more fun!

    Leana says:

    All ways have banana’s and oranges on the counter. The strawberry farm is now open so their will be fresh strawberries in the fridge along with other fruit. No soda in the house unless it is to celebrate a bday, thanksgiving or Christmas. The kids play outside when every day when the sun is out – riding bikes or just running around enjoy the day no sitting and watching TV all day when it is nice outside. The kids are pretty good about eating dinner that I make.

    sharilyn says:

    they love peanut butter and banana smoothies – and I always throw in some spinach – in any smoothie.. makes ’em green – but they don’t taste a thing 😉
