In an era where fast food restaurants are seemingly on every corner, and adverts for sugary treats bombard kids daily, steering children towards healthier habits can be an uphill battle.
Parents play a pivotal role in shaping their offspring's dietary choices and habits. Guiding kids towards a healthier lifestyle involves more than just deciding what's on the dinner table - it's about teaching them the value of nutritional balance, developing a healthy relationship with food, and instilling life-long habits beyond meal times. This journey starts at home, with parents serving as primary influencers, role models, and sustainers of these important lifestyle changes.
In today’s episode, my guest Dr. Sheila Carroll, discusses the challenging task parents face in reversing the trend of unhealthy eating habits prevalent in today's society. She discusses the necessity of providing real, unprocessed foods - ensuring children get enough proteins, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates.
