Healthy family habits
Making smart choices for your family starts with forming healthy habits together. Here are the habits families can implement to keep everyone as happy and healthy as possible.
They snack smart
“Parents can influence their child’s food preferences and how well their brain functions with healthy food choices. Research tells us children can have a hard time learning on processed foods. Moms and dads can make it a point to purchase a wide variety of whole foods instead of cookies, crackers, or sodas for an afternoon snack. I make sure our afternoon snacks include organic fruits and veggies such as apples, nut butter, celery, hummus, grapes, avocados, bananas, spinach, and raw pumpkin seeds.” —Connie Rogers, Certified Integrative Nutritional Holistic Health Coach and author.
