Monthly Wellness for County Employees

Monthly Well-being Education - Talking with kids about health

As parents and role models, we want the children in our life to be healthy and take care of their bodies. However, we often overlook the importance of how we talk about health. It is important to be objective, ask questions, and use positivity rather than fear when discussing health with the children in our life.

Sanford Health Plan’s newest presentation “Psychology & Behavior Change” can equip your employees with skills to create a positive environment at home surrounding health.

Sanford FIT provides child friendly materials that can be helpful for parents and educators. Materials include various videos, activities, games and printables that give children a fun way to engage in their health in a way they understand.
