CPR reenactment

CPR and AED Awareness Week is June 1-7

Only about 48 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest receive the immediate help that they need before professional help arrives. [1]

CPR, especially if performed immediately, could double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival. [2]

To learn how you can help in a cardiac arrest emergency,

Watch the Hands-Only CPR instructional video and share it with the important people in your life.

Healthy Summer tips for the whole family

snacking on fruits and veggies

Help your children develop healthy eating habits early in life that will bring lifelong benefits.

  • When you cook at home you have more control over ingredients and portion sizes, so aim to cook at home more often than eating out. Get great recipes and tips at heart.org/recipes.
  • Make it fun for kids to try new fruits and vegetables. Let them pick out a new fruit or vegetable in the grocery store each week and figure out together how to cook or prepare it in a healthy way.

  • For snack time, keep fresh fruit and pre-chopped or no-chop veggies on hand. Your family is more likely to grab fruits and vegetables over other items if they’re readily available.

  • Cook vegetables in healthy ways that will help bring out their natural flavors, including roasting, grilling, steaming and baking.

Tips for the whole family to promote healthy eating

Be a role model for an active lifestyle. Start moving more yourself and find ways to be active together as a family.

  • Physical activity should be fun for children and adolescents. Encourage kids to keep trying activities to discover the ones they like and will stick with. Don’t use physical activity as a punishment.

  • Reduce or limit sedentary screen time, including watching television, playing video games and using a digital device. Don’t use the TV or a device as a babysitter.

  • Provide kids with opportunities to be active. Give them active toys and games, like bikes, skateboards, roller skates, scooters, jump ropes, balls and sports equipment.

  • Get familiar with community facilities near you, like pools, recreation centers, bike paths and parks.
