CLOCC Healthy at Home

CLOCC is committed to helping families and kids stay healthy when social distancing as a collective response to COVID-19. With new demands and challenges at home, working on nutrition and physical activity can seem like a low priority. During this time we recognize also that parents and caregivers are receiving a high volume of information on how to stay healthy, which can be both helpful and overwhelming.

CLOCC created this page as an easy resource for parents, caregivers, families, and partners to support kids’ nutrition and physical activity. You’ll find some quick tips and tricks, part of our 5-4-3-2-1 Go!® message, and a few resources we think are particularly helpful for staying healthy. A new tip will be posted each week.

Check out our Twitter, @CLOCC_Chicago, for more information, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions: info@CLOCC.net. This initiative is funded in part through the generous support of Kohl’s Cares.

Healthy at Home With Two Hours or Less of
Recreational Screen Time

Homeschooling and social isolation mean more screen time for kids and families. Instead of watching TV or a movie, here are some activity ideas to mix it up: have family game or puzzle night, start reading a chapter book together, challenge your kids to make springtime artwork, or hold a scavenger hunt for common indoor or outdoor objects.

La educación en el hogar y la cuarentena significa más tiempo en frente de la pantalla. En vez de ver la televisión o películas, ofrecemos actividades para mezclar: tengan una noche de juegos o rompecabezas en familia, lean juntos un libro de capítulos, apoye a sus hijos hacer obras de arte de primavera, u organiza un juego de búsqueda de objetos comunes adentro o afuera.

Healthy at Home With Three Servings of Low-Fat Dairy

Kids need 3 servings of dairy or calcium-rich foods per day. Using low-fat (skim or 1%) dairy in recipes, like mac n’ cheese or smoothies, instead of higher fat dairy (like whole or 2%) is an easy way to make meals and snacks healthier. Not a huge fan of dairy? Foods like soymilk, calcium-fortified orange juice, and leafy green vegetables are also a good way to get enough calcium.

Los niños necesitan 3 porciones de lácteos o alimentos ricos en calcio cada día. Usar los lácteos bajos en grasa (1%) en lugar de lácteos altos en grasa (leche entera o 2%) en recetas, como los macarrones con queso o los licuados, es una manera fácil de hacer las comidas y las botanas más saludables. ¿No eres un fanático de los lácteos? Los alimentos como la leche de soya, el jugo de naranja fortificado con calcio y las verduras de hoja verde también son una buena manera de obtener suficiente calcio.
