This is a difficult topic for me because I have always felt that I had issues with weight. In reality, I was never fat, I was more on the anorexic side of things, but I always thought I was fat. With my children, I want to make sure they feel beautiful the way they are. I don’t want them to have the issues that I had, but I still want them to be healthy. I want to feed them healthy foods and give them a large variety. I also feel that exercise is important for a healthy lifestyle. So we go outside and play whenever the sun is out. (we live in WA, Seattle is called the Emerald City for a reason.)
Chiquita is challenging families to take part in a nationwide effort to make healthy choices. They are encouraging families to make changes at home and in schools. It’s Up 2 U is the premier destination in encouraging and raising awareness in childhood obesity. I was checking out their site and didn’t have any clue about the calories that are in school lunches. It would be much healthier to pack a lunch from home or encourage your school to make changes.
