It seems like the modern world we are living in has imposed on us an unhealthy lifestyle. To begin with, the foods we are consuming are full of fat and cholesterol and lacks healthy vitamins; also the struggle for the bills leaves us with no time for physical activity.
Moreover, we don’t even get the sufficiency of sleep that the human body needs. All of these factors lead to several diseases to emerge more and more, including diabetes, obesity, and issues related to the immune system.
The worst part about this is that our children are also getting affected by this lifestyle; especially, when it comes to food. Instead of preparing healthy snacks for kids in the morning, we throw the nearest thing in their bag –whether healthy or not- because we are late for work.
It is a known fact that kids copy their parents and other adults. So, if you are eating health-issues-inducing foods, they will do the same; if you are being sluggish on the couch all day long, they will lay next to you. In this article, we will show you how to avoid bad eating habits that your kids may copy from you.
#1 – Fast food meals
Being able to work fulltime and take care of your children requires an extraordinary effort. Also, trying to improve your career, and doing the household chores leaves you with almost no energy for kids and toddler meals.
That’s the reason why you seek refuge in fast foods since they are easier to get and will take you no effort to order. However, experts are warning that this may make your kids adopt this habit and make it a routine that is hard to break. Therefore, you will be creating a generation that googles (weight loss plans) more than anything.
Cooking home meals could be challenging for single parents or families with a low income. Even though, try to keep an eye on opportunities to buy cheap and discounted fruits and vegetables, while using your weekend to practice meal planning.
