Getting Healthy and Staying Healthy-Together
One of the most important jobs parents have is to pass healthy eating and exercise habits on to their children. But parents are up against some formidable adversaries that are conspiring to keep their kids (and too often themselves) from getting the physical activity and nutritious foods their bodies need. As a result, American children (and adults!) are getting fatter and unhealthier with each passing year.
In FAMILY FUN AND FITNESS, personal trainer and father, Knute Keeling, shows parents how to flex their creative muscles and start taking control of their family's health. His approach to healthy weight and fitness, in this practical, easy-to-use guide suited to parents of young children, focuses on cultivating an early love of physical activity and wholesome, healthy foods.
Keeling's Fit Family Plan is packed with enjoyable ways to make good food and exercise a central, positive aspect of family life. The plan focuses on the formative years (from pre-conception to primary school-age kids) when the stage for optimum nutrition and fitness is being set. At each stage, Keeling tells us what foods and nutrients to promote and what to avoid, what age-appropriate activities to encourage and which to limit and what problems to expect and simple strategies to use for getting around them. For parents, in these same sections, Keeling includes nutritional advice and easy workout routines (with photos) that incorporate cardio, resistance and stretching movements to help pregnant mothers, new mums, and busy parents stay fit and best of all teach their children by their own good example.
