KidZone – Staying Heart Healthy

February is Heart month, a time to bring attention to the importance of cardiovascular health. What are you doing to stay heart healthy?

Mikaeel: To stay heart-healthy, I am eating healthy and fibrous foods, as well as exercising.

Ella: I walk to school every day, workout whenever I have some free time, and participate in lots of sports and other activities that get me moving. I also try to eat pretty healthy.

What do you think adults could do to stay heart healthier?

Mikaeel: Adults could take the stairs instead of taking the elevator, as well as watching what they eat.

Ella: I think that since a fair amount of adults have office jobs, they might not get to be active very much. I think that they should try to get outside and do something at least once a day.

Do you have anyone you think about during Heart month and why?

Mikaeel: I think of my grandma because she had a stroke and did not survive.

Ella: So many of us have family or friends that have suffered with some sort of heart issue. Personally , I have a grandpa with a pacemaker, an aunt who had a stroke and another grandpa with stents. I am so thankful that they all got the help they needed and are doing great!

Give us a great exercise or healthy eating tip that helps the heart.

Mikaeel: One food that is helpful for your heart is fish because it contains omega 3.

Ella: Jump rope! I know you’ve probably heard this one before, but it is a really great way to get your heart pumping and it’s also a ton of fun.

Give us a weird but interesting heart fact.

Mikaeel: Christmas day is the most common day of the year for heart attacks.

Ella: Your heart can still beat even if it’s separated from your body. This is because your heart is not regulated by your brain.
