Once again I feel compelled to write about the problem of obesity and a generally poor diet in kids.
I want to focus this time on how parents must set a good example. If the parents don’t 1) eat healthy nutritious foods themselves, in front of their kids and don’t 2) prepare healthy nutritious meals for their children – what do you expect?
Cutting out the junk food in schools alone won’t solve the problem – kids might just end up skipping school meals entirely or bring junk food on their own to school.
While reducing or eliminating the amount of junk food commercials that appear during children’s TV shows would also help a lot – again, without parents setting a good example its not enough.
I don’t have any kids now, but we are starting the process to adopt and I want to make sure my child will see good eating habits coming from her parents. I’ll admit, I sometimes cheat and eat a little more junk than I should – but I’ll have to stop that once we are parents.
For those who are parents already – do you have any tips to share on how to make sure you do the right thing and eat healthy foods around your kids and how to get them to eat right too?
