There are so many wonderful benefits that come along with adopting a healthy lifestyle and following Beyond Diet, and I am grateful for all of them.
One amazing benefit is that I am able to teach my young children how to eat healthy, nutritious food. My two boys eat the same food as we eat on Beyond Diet, and since they have spent their entire (short!) lives doing this, this is the only way of eating that they know.
We have all heard the heartbreaking statistics about childhood obesity.
Obesity rates among children have tripled in the past 30 years, and according to some experts, today's overweight children may not outlive their parents. We MUST make a change, and we must make that change NOW.
How to Introduce Healthy Eating to Children
Some kids can be very picky eaters, so don't get discouraged if your son or daughter doesn't immediately take to new foods. Don't give up! Try cooking the food different ways or experimenting with the presentation.
Many children spend way too much time inside watching TV, playing video games, or playing on their computers. Since you are the parent, you get to make the rules! Limit TV or computer time each day, and incorporate an active lifestyle your whole family can take part in. That could be as simple as taking a family walk after dinner or taking family bike rides on the weekend!
Encourage your kids to play sports, try a dance or gymnastic class, or even just shoot hoops. The trick (as it is with adults!) is to help your kids find activities they really enjoy doing so they are more likely to stick with them.
Remember, it's never too late to change habits - our kids' or our own! So if you want to already make positive, lasting changes in your health and your family's health, and keep off the unwanted pesky fat, there's no better time to start than now.
