(CNN) -- For parents looking to get their kids on track with some healthier habits, helping them make a new year's resolution could be a fun way to start. The American Academy of Pediatrics has come out with a list of age-specific resolutions.

For preschoolers, the academy suggests habit-forming resolutions. Things like cleaning up their toys and washing their hands after using the bathroom. For kids that are slightly older, up to age 12, you can start incorporating bigger ideas like drink more water, be active, and practice safety online.

For teens, resolutions can be anything from eating enough fruits and vegetables, to healthy ways to manage stress. This is a great way to not only let your children participate in a fun holiday tradition, but it can spark a conversation that gets the whole family on a path to having a healthier and happier new year.
