I don’t think I’m alone when I say that as a parent we only ever want what’s best for our kids. This also goes to their health through exercise sleep and their diet.
We do give them a bit of freedom as they are kids of course and young people in general are super resilient, with thier accelerated metabolism and seemingly limitless amounts of young energy, most can usually pull through any sign of fatigue from excess insulin after slamming down that supersized soft drink or bag of dough nuts.
However now is a good time to start to build healthy habits (spoiler alert!) For them to respect their bodies and understand how they can get the most out of them for years to come….in essence by sending the right messages to our genes.
It has been reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that for the first time in history, the life expectancy for today’s kids may actually be less than their parents….a very sobering thought.
