Featured Activities-

It's important to start children on the right track early when it comes to healthy eating. Obesity is an epidemic affecting millions of children worldwide and an education about healthy living is the first step in changing that. A good place to start with the the Food Pyramid. With younger children, pick up various food items around the house and challenge them to pick what group it belongs in. Ask them to review what they've eaten that day and how many servings of each group they've eaten. Then, ask them what they still need and what foods might help them reach the recommended amounts of each group. For older children, weight can be a major concern. Discuss calories, carbohydrates, protein and fat and how each combine to create a healthy (or unhealthy) diet. Make sure to note why each group is important and how even fat is a necessary part of our diet. Also include minerals and vitamins and the sources of each. Take a look at the Daily Recommended Values figures on food packaging so that they understand what the numbers really mean. From there, you can review specific diets like the Atkins Plan or a Vegan diet. Ask the children to point out what's makes those diets imbalanced, as well as what could be added to create a balanced, healthy diet. The Medifast Diet is a great example of a well-rounded diet plan, but it's also important to teach children that making good food choices is the ultimate way to live a happy, healthy lifestyle.
