    Answer 1/7

    Your mission: Make healthy choices to make it through a pretend day. Do a good job and you'll have energy to do what you love and tackle your next adventure! Ready? OK, let's go!

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Breakfast is the right choice in the morning. A healthy breakfast fuels your brain and body for the day so you have energy to tackle any adventures that come your way.

     

    Try a healthy, fast breakfast like:

    • Oatmeal, a piece of fruit, and cup of low-fat milk
    • Or choose a piece of whole wheat toast, an egg, and cup of low-fat milk

    Answer 2/7

    It's been a long morning. Now, it's time for lunch! You're really hungry. How many slices of pizza should you eat?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Say there is a 14-inch, regular-crust cheese pizza. Just one slice is enough for a meal when you eat it with a piece of fruit or salad and a glass of low-fat milk. That is a healthy meal.

     

    If you eat two slices, you'll wind up eating too much unhealthy fat. Unhealthy saturated fat that comes from fried foods, pepperoni, and full-fat cheese is bad for your heart. It can also make you gain unhealthy weight.

    Answer 3/7

    Whew, school's out! You made it home. Time to explore the kitchen and pick a healthy snack.  Which is the better choice?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    A piece of fruit and low-fat string cheese is the better snack.

     

    While juice sounds healthy, it can have too much unhealthy sugar. Fresh fruit is always the best choice. Fruit has fiber that is good for you and helps keep you full.

     

    Chips can be greasy and full of unhealthy fats. Low-fat string cheese is the better choice. It also has protein. Chips don't. Protein in the cheese will help you stay full until dinner and give you energy to tackle homework.

    Answer 4/7

    That snack was tasty! What next? Well, you have some homework. So you decide to...

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Surprise! It's better to run around and get some exercise before you open up your backpack to start homework.

     

    You know exercise is good for your body. But did you know that exercise also helps your brain work and can give you energy to focus?

     

    It can! So tell your mom that and move around for about 15 minutes before you sit down to study. Ride your bike, shoot hoops, or dance. It will to get your brain ready to learn.

     

    Plus, it'll count toward the 60 minutes of movement throughout your day that you're aiming for.

    Answer 5/7

    Now, it's dinner time.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Wait is the right answer. You should wait about 20 minutes before you grab seconds or decide to get dessert. It takes about that long for your brain to get the message from your stomach that it is full.

     

    After you wait, then you can decide if you really are hungry for that extra scoop of mac and cheese or dessert.

     

    Eating more than your body needs can lead to unhealthy weight gain.

    Answer 6/7

    The table is cleared and it's time to relax. What's the best way to relax?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Grabbing your family and going for a walk is the better choice.

     

    While laughing is good for you, getting up and moving is waaay better than sitting in front of the TV. Going for a family walk can help your whole family wind down and relax after your long day. Moving helps your body get rid of stress.

     

    Still want a good laugh? You could try telling each other jokes while you walk. Talk about the funniest thing that happened to you that day. Or see who has the best funny walk.

    Question 7/7

    It's night and almost time for lights out. What do you do to relax and get ready for bed?

    Answer 7/7

    It's night and almost time for lights out. What do you do to relax and get ready for bed?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Listening to some quiet music is the better way to get ready for bed.

     

    Why is TV not a good choice? Bright lights from the TV can make it hard for your brain to get sleepy. Shut the TV off at least an hour before bed.

     

    Music can help you wind down and fall asleep because it can relax you, especially if it's part of a bedtime routine you do every night.

     

    Having a bedtime routine -- like brushing your teeth, listening to music, and reading -- right before lights out can help your body know it's time to sleep.

     

    That way you can be sure to get 10 hours of sleep so you'll have enough energy for whatever comes your way tomorrow.
