Bridget Moynahan Speaks Her Mind

The busy actress talks about her love of exercise, healthy food, and her role in the new series Blue Bloods.

There was also gym class in school when you were a kid; a lot of schools don't have that now.

Unfortunately in the school systems when they're making budget cuts, PE is one of the things that gets cut out, along with art and music. Those are really important things to be teaching kids that will enhance their entire lives. It's unfortunate that schools have to make those cuts.

It's harder for parents these days to raise healthy kids when there are so many advertisements for junk food on kids' TV.

We didn't watch a lot of TV, but I think it's harder for parents nowadays because there are advertisements everywhere. It's not always the healthy choices that are being pumped out there to the kids. A lot of these sports drinks and energy drinks are not healthy for kids but they're kind of being marketed to them. But there are still so many choices available for you to make good decisions for yourself and for your children. It's just a matter of putting the effort into it.

What's the best health advice you've ever gotten?

I wish I had that role model in my life who gave me of those nuggets of advice, but I just haven't. It's just been life choices that I've made along the way to stay healthy.
