We are nutritionists and personal trainers, but also Mums to our daughters, and daughters to our Mums so we have lots of experience on this subject!
We’ve got experience on both sides: we were the ones looking up to our Mums and being told how to eat, and we are the ones educating and speaking to our kids about the importance of a balanced diet.
We’ll be honest: it’s a minefield.
The best thing to do is not to discuss dieting with your kids. We want our children to have a natural and uncomplicated relationship with food, understanding the importance of a healthy diet but also that everything in moderation is absolutely fine and perfectly healthy.
But we must be realistic: we can’t keep our kids sheltered from the outside world. Being weighed in school, having friends who might be trying to lose weight, social media, TV… these messages are everywhere.
So how can we help raise confident, strong and body-accepting kids?
We hope these tips helped you, but get in touch at email@example.com if you want to have a chat. We’d also be happy to have a chat with you and your kids together to go through the foundations of nutrition!
And keep your eyes peeled, we are working on a very exciting project that will bring so much information and value to those of you that felt they needed this blog post!
