Kids are vulnerable, impressionable and absorb so much of their surroundings.
How you raise up a child will give them the tools for success and making better decisions.
This goes for how they are taught about food decisions as well. What is the point if they are successful, have a great retirement, 401k, but are unhealthy, tired, irratible, sick and not thriving physically in life.
It is no suprise how busy we are and food decisions are the last thing on people's minds. Let's get to school, pay the bills, get to work & we forget how important nutrition really is for developing brains & bodies. I don't just tell my kids don't eat that it is not healthy, but I tell them WHY??? Then they get it. As in, keep on eating sugar and your pancreas will stop working, then you'll have to have a needle stuck in you at all times to pump insulin in you to keep your blood sugar leveled. Then it gets real for them and the sugar isn't so attractive or worth the 30 seconds of pleasure.
Our organs do not have a Lifetime Guarantee so why do we play with them like they do. Invest in your 401k and don't invest in your health, you might not get to see that retirement fund or you live retirement sick.
That's why I love Laura and her Passion. She gets it. She knows that Americans are busy, get caught up, lose focus, yet she sticks in their to help the busy mom to make better choices in balanced zoned sizes and food. There is no thinking. She does it for you and now she's going after our kids before they destroy their health too. Maintenance on health is so much easier than getting sick and trying to reverse your health. Trust me, we are not invinsible, keep playing Russian Roulette with your body and one day it will snap.
