My St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School students, talking about a few things they learned to be "Fit for Life."
One of my greatest joys is working with children. They simply do what I tell them since they are used to being given instructions in school.
I find that if you explain to kids why broccoli is good for them, why processed foods aren't optimal for their bodies & brains, etc they will make better choices on their own.
Most important is getting the entire family onboard.
Many of my adult clients find that their children start wanting to eat as they are.
I'll never forget when I was on my weight loss journey, and my daughter sat at the table arms folded, pouting about eating her broccoli. Then a couple months later I'm yelling "Elli did you eat all my broccoli again?"
Now I see that happening over & over again with my clients.
Our future is brighter with these students in it.
