HALF Interactive Tools

   Healthy Active Living for Families Implementation Guide

To support pediatricians and families a number of interactive tools were developed. These tools include two interactive and embeddable widgets and the HALF "app."

  • The "Quick Tips: Keep Your Child Healthy" widget  allows patients to get tailored, realistic, parent-derived and evidence informed action strategies about areas of healthy active living that are most important to them. Topics include breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, starting solid foods, picky eaters, snack time, routines, physical activity, screen time and sleep.  Explore the widget and learn how you can embed the widget onto your practice's Web site.
  • The "Are You Raising a Healthy, Active Child?" quiz widget is a fun way to dispel some of the common myths around food and feeding, physical activity, and healthy active living. Take the Quiz and review the directions to embed the widget on your practice own Web site.
  • The HALF "App" (coming Fall 2012) allows the family to identify the top three healthy active living topics which they would like additional action strategies on and allows you to create a personalized handout that can be emailed to the family or printed in your office.
