Last week I talked with John Hutchings on Healthy Edge Radio about getting your family to eat healthy–especially when your kids won’t touch veggies! (One method–try a smoothie! A great one for kids is my Tropical Summer Smoothie recipe above.)
We talked with Dr. Stephen Cook (left) about an interview I did with him for my healthy parenting article about childhood obesity (There I am next to him), coming in the July/August issue of Healthy Edge Magazine.
We discussed the latest research, and what parents can do to confront the issue. (Listen to the full radio show here!) I loved picking his brain about the biological, socioeconomic and psychosocial factors that contribute to this epidemic, and I learned a TON! One of the main points–Obesity is a disease that must be confronted with a behavioral-based, family approach…and the emotional complications that kids experience far outweigh the physical ones. Also, we discussed what busy parents can do to prevent it. (Get this–Prevention starts BEFORE you start your family!)
