News: Parenting Tips

Family Time It is very important to talk with your children. Talk about the importance of healthy eating. Cook with them and prepare healthy meals and snacks. Make some time for “family time”.  Instead of watching TV, make family time more meaningful by preparing, cooking, eating and enjoying healthy foods together. You are your child’s example. If you are not going to eat the healthy foods that you suggest they eat, they will not eat them either. Enjoy eating healthy meals together.

Healthy eating habits are crucial for young children's growth and development... the best for these kids is my #1 priority. I would not be as informed and successful if not for you and your program.
