Welcome to my inaugural HEALTHY KIDS post!
I a mom of 2 kids that would easily describe me as a health and fitness fanatic (I would say more of an enthusiast) that does a lot of what I do for my kids. A role model that tries to teach with actions just as often, if not more so, than words alone. I also work with 1000+ elementary school kids as a school psychologist. It would be safe to say the topic of healthy kids is often on my mind. What can we do to encourage a healthier generation? What can we do to encourage kids to move more? To make healthy choices about what they eat?
Introducing something new, a weekly blog post that focuses on kids' health and fitness. A resource for tips, ideas, information and stories.
I'm sure you've heard of one of my favorite kid-focus programs, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.
How can you not like a program that inspires healthy eating and kids in the kitchen…
