Health Tip #3

During my professional career as a wellness coach, personal trainer, and nutritionist, I worked alongside a Pediatrician. We worked together to help underweight and overweight children learn healthy eating and wellness choices to maintain a healthy weight for their age and height. The main culprit that caused their nutritional imbalances was sugar. High sugar foods and drinks! If a child receives nutrient dense whole foods, they will not crave these high sugar foods or drinks because their bodies are receiving all of the nutrients it needs to maintain proper physical well being.

GOAL: Limit your child’s intake to ONLY 3 servings of high sugar foods or drinks PER WEEK. This is true moderation.
Example: 1 gatorade,1 package of gummy snacks, 1 serving of ice cream for the entire week. All other meals consist of fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, low-fat dairy, whole grains, and water.
