(HealthDay News) -- A new year means a new chance to begin healthier habits. And even preschoolers can make healthier changes as they grow.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says young children can resolve to:
- Put away toys and and clean up messes.
- Allow parents to help them brush their teeth twice daily.
- Always wash hands after using the bathroom and before and after eating.
- Help parents clean the table after eating.
- Be kind to animals, and always ask permission before petting an unfamiliar animal.
- Be kind to other kids, especially to those who seem sad, lonely or need a friend.
- Talk to parents or other adults they trust if they feel scared or need help.
