Summer is quickly approaching and I don’t know about you guys, but I am scrambling for ways to keep my three children busy, active, and NOT driving me bonkers!
Teaching my children how to make nutritious choices and to encourage eating healthily is important to me. Just as important is helping them choose and enjoy an active, “let’s get moving” lifestyle.
Weight Watchers has come out with a new book- Eat! Move! Play!- that addresses these issues, a book that focuses on the family unit, understanding that we moms play a HUGE role in the food choices our children make and how active (or NOT active) our children live.
An excerpt from the Weight Watchers website about the book:
Whether it’s 24/7 snacking, daily fast-food runs, or nonstop video-game marathons, nowadays it’s tougher than ever to get kids to eat right and move more. Yet it is possible to encourage nutritious eating habits and a healthy active lifestyle in your kids—if you have the right tools.
Weight Watchers Eat! Move! Play! gives you trusted information on how to develop and maintain the right habits for keeping the whole family happy and healthy.Designed to help you become a healthier role model for your children, Weight Watchers Eat! Move! Play! demystifies the four vitally important elements for a healthy lifestyle, including developing a positive body image; a taste for wholesome, nutritious foods; smart eating habits; and a love of physical activity.
