Parents choices define their childrens future. Today, kids watch TV for eight times as many hours as they spend in meaningful conversation with Mom and Dad. With the new school year coming around the corner, it is vital to give your kids the necessary guidance and lead by example when it comes to decisions about health. This guide will help make that guidance easier to understand and teach. Here is whats included: 1. Back to School Guide - Learn how to get results with your kids, and replace junk with health in your childrens lives. 2. Breakfast Power Recipes - Get the day started with metabolism-boosting breakfast meals that taste great.
Start Early Habits that develop at an early age tend to remain stable as a child grows. Make sure that the habits you foster maximize health. Be a role model If your kids dont see you eating right, exercising and taking care of yourself, it will be hard to convince them to make smart choices of their own. Take an active role in your health, and your whole family will notice the difference. Involve kids in the process Involve kids in shopping and cooking, and they will be more invested in eating when the food comes out on the table. Dont follow commercials Junk food companies market specifically to kids. Stand firm against those messages, because the products that are being sold create disease in the long run. Your kids dont need a happy meal or bag of candy to be cheerful and whole – they need health. Unconditional love Nobody can live a healthy life if they are doing so to earn someone elses approval. Always let your kids know that you love them no matter what.
