Today i paid a little attention to Sam Food and still am convinced she bought all of that and place it nicely on a plate! haha but of course i know she whips them up by herself, best thing is that she shares her food with Kayla.
Kids don't learn if you tell them what to do, but if they watch you do they would imitate and follow, so what Sam is doing amazes me! getting a child to eat an array of vegetable is no doubt a task for many Mom! Most parents i've come across would rather feed anything from a bag or chips because its so tasty the kids would eat it for sure and man! kids take forever to eat,seriously. I don't have kids of my own but i've had 2 nieces that i had to feed and look after when i was barely 14 and i sang every freaking song in the nursery rhyme book, dance around,every spoon i held took of all sort of airplane rides into their mouth. But when i was 14 i couldn't know any better about children and relationship they have with adults or any one they come across, everyone they meet moulds them into the person they become! So good on you Sam! i'm so proud of you.
What i'm trying to say is basically if you want to start inculcating a healthier lifestyle for your children or for your love ones, you have to take the first step and show them, time is only a factor you have 24 hours a day and 1 hours could be spend doing any physical activities together! yes i know you have an 8-5 job and you are tired by the time you get home, but if you just put in 30 minute of activity once you get home every other day thats a good 1.5 hours- 2 a week and darling in the long run your body would take you.
Here are some workout that don't feel like a workout!
1) Washing the car together.
2)Swimming or building a sandcastle by the beach.
3)Explore a different park everyweek! i just discovered there's so many click here
4) Walk around the shopping centre(not my favourite, but everyone seems to do it)
