I don't always think about this along the journey but there have been times lately that my kids say or do something that reminds me that changing my life is helping to put them on a better path. Here are some examples.
Water: My kids are more likely to grab a water bottle when thirsty than before. They know they are only allowed 1 juice a day so they don't even ask. But they don't complain about the water. They see me carrying around my big cup of water all the time. They even will experiment putting lemon juice or lime juice in their water.
Serving Sizes. We talk a lot about serving sizes here. Enough so that when the kids come home from school they look in the snack cupboard and ask "How many cookies is a serving?" and then take that many and are satisfied. They are also learning that sometimes you get a lot more if you choose a lower calorie snack. Hmmm.. a big bowl of grapes or 2 cookies.....
What food does - My kids can tell you whether different foods are carbs, proteins and what they do for your body. (sometimes). I really like that they know why we can't eat a whole package of cookies...and why eggs are good for them.
Exercise: I am proud that I am teaching my children a daily habit of movement. Now, my dad played team sports (for the local bar) while I was growing up, but he didn't take care of his body outside of that. I am thrilled to be able to teach my children all the pieces that go together to make up a healthy body and mind.
