As a mom of three I show my kids how to be healthy by leading by example. We are an active family who enjoys many activities. I teach the kids that in order to be able to do the things we love we need to fuel our bodies with healthy food. It is not only my children that I teach healthy living to, I have written and illustrated a children's picture book called ABC Healthy. I go into stores, libraries, and schools encouraging children to live healthy lives. The reactions from the kids is amazing. They love to tell me how they make healthy choices. Staying positive, reading books, and talking to your children about health is the best way to get your kids to live a healthy lifestyle.
