Healthy Habit Trackers (Review)

Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

Summer can be a great time to focus on starting (or getting back to) good healthy living routines. 

This summer, we have had the privilege of trying out some neat Healthy Habit Trackers from the American Coaching Academy.

What Are Healthy Habit Trackers?

The Healthy Habit Trackers are a set of twelve different trackers designed to help children keep track of various things, including exercise, nutrition, and even chores. 

They are creative and visually appealing to help make them motivating for your children.

They include:

  • Muscular Endurance
  • Household Chores
  • Healthy Body
  • Kindness
  • Nutrition
  • Locomotor
  • Boot Camp
  • Yoga Flow
  • Cardio
  • Flexibility
  • Muscular Strength
  • Bee Fit

How Can You Use Healthy Habit Trackers?

These are designed to use a different one of twelve different trackers to be used one per month. However, you can decide what your family needs most, and you might stick with one for several months or use more than one per month.

Some families choose not to do yoga, so you might not even print that tracker. These give families a great deal of flexibility in how they use them.

For example, a family might decide to use the healthy body one every month because it motivates children to brush their teeth, get plenty of sleep, etc. Other families might find that the routines and habits are in place after a month, and they want to move on to a different tracker.

If your children like the trackers, they might want to do several at once, while other students might find that a bit overwhelming.

I felt like starting with one was a good fit for our family because I was using them with my younger sons, and I knew I would be responsible for helping them keep track. We started with nutrition because we had already been working on helping my eight-year-old better stay hydrated and eat well.

What Did We Think About the Healthy Habit Trackers?

I think the Healthy Habit Trackers are an excellent tool for helping children become more consistent with their healthy habits. I love that they are all visually different so that the design works well for the particular habits and keeps things visually interesting for the child.

I also appreciated the bonus blank tracking forms that allow us to track other habits or activities. For example, I am planning to use one of them in the fall to help my son track his music practice and motivate him to be more consistent.  

Conclusions

If your children struggle to be consistent with their exercise, nutrition, tooth brushing, etc., these might be a simple and inexpensive way to motivate them. Though our family will not use all of them, they are a great set, and it is easy to pick and choose the ones that will work best for your family.

Simplify

“Simplify” has been a byword for me recently.  I’ve had to consolidate, prioritize, dovetail…in order to keep all the “plates spinning” in my life. Part of this process has been bringing posts from my two other blogs into the world of “Strength for Today.”  What that means for my readers is that you’ll find more info on the topics of health, fitness and dieting as well as homeschooling and education now in this one spot.  It is much easier for me to manage this way, and more efficient as well.  So, enjoy all the new stuff just added to the archives!  If you were reading at the “Smee Minus Fifty” blog, or “The Old Chalkdust Trail”…these will soon be eliminated as their content is merged into its new home here.

Enjoy! 🙂
