|Reviewers Comments: ||Leaflet encourages families to use things around their home as tools to help them exercise, rather than purchasing expensive exercise equipment. Also included is a checklist of tips to be active and eat and drink healthy as a family. Families can also agree on their own new steps, and are encouraged to sign the document and hang it on the refrigerator. This behavior modification technique is a great way to get families more accountable for their actions.
