As a parent, I am in constant battle with myself about my child’s diet. I don’t want to deprive him of things he enjoys, but I want to keep him healthy. I also want to make sure I give him the tools to maintain that throughout his life. My biggest struggle in life was learning to eat healthy and exercise later in life. I had so many bad habits (not to mention extra pounds) to lose and change before I could begin to live a healthy lifestyle.
When I had my son, I made a vow to instill in him early the love and appreciation of healthy foods. I want to do it while still allowing him to be a kid, and letting him enjoy the perks and goodies that come along with it. When I can across this article, I knew I needed to share it with you guys. I am not saying you have to choose to follow all these tips, but maybe there is one or two in here that speak to you. Take a few minutes to read through it, and let’s be the type of parents who help our kids understand health and fitness and how important good health is to us all!
