Today the Check-In for Checkups program begins.
Each time someone goes to the website and “checks-in” that they accomplished a healthy habit, a 10 cent donation to the Children’s Health Fund is made by Clorox.
You can change a child’s life while changing your own!
The Children’s Health Fund runs mobile health clinics all over the country to give a medical home to children who wouldn’t have one otherwise. Several of these mobile health clinics are right here in Dallas.
The healthy habits check-in is easy. It doesn’t have to be a HUGE habit. This program is about making small steps toward a healthier life for you and your family.
Every little change helps.
My goal this summer is to feed my kids healthy snacks. I have found that they are much more likely to gobble up healthy food when presented in a snack vs. meal. I don’t understand it, but am going to try to take full advantage of it this summer.
Each time I accomplish this, I will be checking in at Check-ins for Checkups and triggering a donation to CHF.
The website is also full of great ideas and you can check-in for other healthy habits.
I noticed that one of the habits was to schedule a yearly mammogram if you are over 40.
Well, I am…
And it reminded me of the envelope sitting on my kitchen counter with a letter from my doctor telling me to do this very thing dated 2 months ago.
I just called and scheduled it.
I just checked-in.
Join me in making this summer a healthier one for your family…one check-in at a time.
She is Dallas info: The Check-In for Checkups program is sponsored by Clorox. I am working with The Clorox Company for the Check-in for Checkups program that benefits Children's Health Fund (CHF). You can follow my healthy habit progress here at She is Dallas or on Twitter with the hashtag: #checkinforcheckups. For each check-in, Clorox will donate 10 cents, up to $100,000, to CHF to help support their goal of providing half a million health care visits to disadvantaged children across the country.
