As a parent, you lead by example, and this truth also extends to healthy eating and exercise routines.
Children often learn more from what you do than what you say. So, you must encourage them to live a
healthy active lifestyle. We must urge them to eat their vegetables daily. As a parent we juggle responsibilities of parenting, managing a household, work and other daily obligations. This can be extremely challenging to allow for physical activities and exercise.

But we must make time to incorporate exercise. The best way to make time while not sacrificing time with the family is to make it a family event/activity. It’s the perfect way to show your kids and spouse the importance of exercise. Building early habits in your children will more than likely carry those habits into their adulthood. This will ensure a healthy important lifestyle. Always make it fun by including the entire family. Everyone will benefit.
