This summer my kids will be 10 and 8. This is the first summer they'll be occupying themselves for quite a bit (excluding the summer of 2020). DH will be working from home and I will be splitting time between home and office.

DH wants a no-screen time rule for weekdays during the summer and only fruit and veggie snacks. I'm looking to build some more flexible guidelines that allows screentime after some other pursuits (reading, chores, playing outside)... and while I try to push healthier foods I don't want the healthy food thing to completely backfire on us.

Have you set up any systems or rules that helped guide your older kids to make healthy choices during the summer?
