Fixing Our Health Starts With Our Kids #drmarkhyman #kidshealth
When a child is provided real, whole foods unadulterated with sugar, poor quality fats, toxic additives, and food dyes, their body knows exactly what to eat and how much.
They will eat just what their growing body needs when provided this high quality diet that their DNA evolved from.
What I have come to realize as a parent is that there is a great deal of letting go and going with the flow. I have also learned that, as a parent, what you eat, how you eat, and why you eat what you do is really important because our children are keen observers who absorb everything we do.
In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I share the top tips and wisdom I have gained from my experience as a doctor and dad for raising healthy eaters.
In this episode, I discuss:
* Teaching children to eat real food
* Modeling healthy eating
* Setting realistic boundaries about food choices and mealtimes
* Involving your children in meal planning and preparation
* Presenting and “disguising” healthy food
