Get the Kids to Eat Right
What is your favorite thing to eat? If I ask my kids this question, they always says the same thing. I
would think their opinion would change rather frequently, but they always reply with Dominos Pizza.
Even though we only order from there once in a blue moon, they still sing the praises of
pepperoni. But you know, our family doctor later pointed something out to me. Fast food (including most pizza)
is horrible! Since we only hit up a fast food joint a few times each year, we're not doing bad, but some other
people.... We plain and simply weren't meant to eat that stuff. It's basically poison for our bodies. Things have
got to change. It's time for some nutritious, heart healthy diets.
Do you focus on good heart healthy diets each and every day? You know, your life could depend on it. Not to
mention the lives of your other family members. Not to be insulting, but I've certainly noticed something about
families in the last couple years. Overweight parents have overweight children.
It makes me so sad to see a seven year old that's already way overweight. It all goes back to the parents.
They're the one responsible for providing heart healthy diets for their little ones. Sure we can blame all the fast
food chains all we want, but the fact is we choose what we consume. It's time to stop being lazy and start eating
Believe me, it's never too soon to begin heart healthy diets. You should actually start your little ones while
they're still young. This way they will have no problem continuing the heart healthy diets as they age. Things you
want to be sure and avoid in your meals are loads of fat, salt, sugar, and cholesterol.
None of these are good for your body. Focus more on protein, calcium, vitamins and minerals. These are the very
building blocks for heart healthy diets. Don't you want to live a long and healthy life? Then start eating like it.
