2. Practice the EASY healthy habits every day

Protecting your heart and brain health is as EASY as picking a favourite healthy habit to focus on as a family! EASY is fun for everyone to practice at home.

Owen

Eat fruits and vegetables - Fill half your plate with a rainbow of fruits and veggies to keep growing up healthy.

Owen

Active for 1 hour or more - The faster you move your body, the faster your heart pumps to power up your brain and muscles with blood and oxygen.

Owen

Screens for less than 2 hours per day - Fundraising online is fun, but most of your free time should be spent away from televisions and technology, being active to keep your heart and brain healthy.

Owen

Yes to water and no to sugary drinks - Half your body (including your heart and brain) is made of water so make sure you drink enough to fuel it.


3. Talk to your parent or guardian about heart and brain health

  • Ask them what they do to keep their heart and brain healthy
  • Ask them if anyone in your family has been affected by heart disease or stroke
  • Show them the EASY healthy habits
  • Tell them about the FAST signs of stroke
