Promote These Healthy Habits With Your Family

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DenTek for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the new year, I decided to spend this year and hopefully the rest that follows, focusing on a healthier lifestyle. Throughout my life, I have always talked about being healthier and taking care of myself, but I have never completely focused on it. In my experience, goals are better achieved when there is more than one person involved so I thought that it would be nice to promote healthy habits with my husband and kids.

Trying to get your family to live a healthier lifestyle is not impossible no matter how young they are. From my experience, you can achieve this by creating simple healthy habits. Here are some ways you can promote healthy habits with your family:

  • Get Up & Move: Make it a habit to walk around the neighborhood as a family, go to the park or play a fun game of basketball.
  • Cook More & Eat Out Less: It is always better to avoid the fast food temptations. Eating at home is not only healthier but it allows you to control portions.
  • Create a Monthly Menu: Have your family get involved with choosing what is for dinner. Kids can choose the vegetables or fruits that will be served as well as helping prepare the main meal. When you get your kids involved in meal planning and cooking, they become more interested in eating what is served to them.
  • Relax: Often times grown-ups are on the go and kids are either struggling with homework or playing on an electronic device. One healthy habit is to allow yourself to have at least 30 minutes of quiet time with zero distractions.
  • Floss: Too often flossing is overlooked or only done when you need to get a chunk of meat out of your teeth. Flossing is especially, often times, overlooked by kids, so it’s important to incorporate this into your family’s healthy habits. If you don’t floss, then you are putting yourself at risk for a lot of serious health conditions.

One way to encourage your family to floss is to Join the 30 Day DenTek® Family Floss Challenge. The first step is to go to Walmart and purchase DenTek® Triple Clean Floss Picks for the grown-ups and DenTek® Kids Fun Flossers for the kids. I always purchase these at Walmart because of their every day low prices. Once you purchase the DenTek® Flossers, use the calendar tool from This tool will allow you to include family testimonials while also having the opportunity to win prizes. There is no purchase to participate or win. Visit for official rules and more information.

As a mom, I love DenTek® Kids Fun Flossers because my kids actually enjoy flossing with them. In addition, DenTek® Kids Fun Flossers feature a smaller head which fit in the child’s mouth just right and easy to grip handles that are perfect for little hands.

For my husband and I, we enjoy using DenTek® Triple Clean Floss Picks because it gives us three times the cleaning action in one floss pick. The flossers scrub between tight teeth, stimulate your gums and remove food and plaque. We also love the tongue cleaner that has a minty flavor and fights bad breath.

What healthy habits do you promote with your family? Will your family be taking the DenTek® 30 Day Family Floss Challenge?
