Parents - you are the champion in your child’s life. They look to you for safety, knowledge, nurturing, and all that is good and true. Empower yourself with the knowledge you need to get your family on track to a healthy, fit lifestyle.

Knowledge is power! When you know what to do, and why to do it, you start off on the right foot taking the first step. You know where you are going and what it will look like when you get there. Help them help themselves by showing them the way.

Step 1 - Learn and Plan

Learn about fitness and nutrition benefits as they relate to your child. Talk to your child’s doctor - find out the benefits. Continue to read and educate yourself and your family members. Establish a plan that works for your family and stick to it - plan meals at home and in restaurants. Know which foods your child will accept and those which offer the greatest benefits. Make fitness and nutrition part of your daily life and keep working the plan. Encourage your child to follow your example.

Step 2 - Show Up and Share

Be the catalyst in your child’s life to get moving, attend exercise classes, eat healthy foods, and continue to get better each day. Work your plan together. End each day by sharing what you did to make a difference that day - you added a new exercise, you tried a new food, you read an article or talked to another parent about fitness and nutrition. Whatever it is, no matter how small, can make a big difference.

Step 3 - Stick with It

Continually increase your knowledge and understanding of what it takes to help your child become fit. Tell them why fitness and nutrition are vital to their health and what the benefits can be for them. Help your child understand it, accept it, and stick with it. Show understanding as these changes slowly shape the heath of your family and continue to move ahead, one rung at a time.
