What can you do to make sure your child doesn't fall into the obesity trap? What are some changes you can implement right now to make a difference?
One nutritional change to make is to take ownership. When you're constantly so busy and hectic, it's vital to ask yourself what is really important in your life.
As an adult, it is up to YOU to teach your children about the positive effects wholesome foods have on their bodies and the unfortunate negative effects of constantly eating junk food.
What are the other two nutritional changes?
- Provide structure. As a parent, it's up to you to teach, nurture, and care for your child.
- Don't be afraid to say NO. Food education is incredibly important. It may not always be convenient but it is necessary.
Unfortunately, kids in this generation are the first generation of kids not expected to outlive their parents. This a direct result of what they are eating and a lack of physical activity.
