Ensure that your children have a good foundation of nutrition. Eating is a learned behavior and can strengthen our bodies on a cellular level. See how feeding your children a nutrient dense diet, avoiding processed, artificially flavored and colored ingredients, keeping them away from calorically dense- high in sugar with no nutritional value products can improve their overall quality of life. Starting this early on will not only encourage a healthy way of life all along it may decrease or eliminate their risk of disease and obesity.
