I know what your thinking….yeh right!
..
The thing is the obesity epidemic is out of control and making adults/kids unhappy.
..
The question is, what are YOU gonna do about it?
..
Kids are essentially a product of their environment and I know from experience that trying to get a nipper to eat good food is tricky at the best of times.
..
In the news recently they come up with a plan to combat this problem (yes it is a problem) by teaching parents how to cook
..
So essentially creating the environment for a healthy upbringing.
..
This kinda works.
..
But the problem will still be the stubborn parents who have a fear of change.
..
>>You know who you are<<
..
Do yourself and your kids a favour and get your head out of the clouds (or your arse!) and start to make some changes by following some SC Vital Fitness tips.
..
Here are our tips:
..
Small Changes – If your nipper is fussy, then start with small changes and pick your battles, remember it could be a war and winning every battle is gonna be hard.
..
Be a good role model – this is ensuring that your kids are a product of their environment, if you eat crap, or turn your nose up at different foods, they will copy.
..
Rewards – Don’t reward with sweets for eating food and call it a treat, reward with some time at the park or doing something active.
..
Body image – Don’t portray any part of your body (or theirs) with negative connotations, “hey my little pork chop”etc – kids are like sponges and will take it badly (in the future)
