Healthy Eating for the Whole Family

Keeping track of your protein and vitamins on top of everything else in your day is no easy task, and it’s even trickier when you’re trying to feed a family. Kids are notoriously picky eaters, and so it can be a challenge to get the right foods from their plates into their bellies.

One way approach to get your kids on board with healthier eating habits is to teach them about the importance of proper nutrition and to involve them in the planning of family meals. Try different fruits and vegetables. And keep in mind that just because they don’t like canned or frozen green beans, for example, doesn’t mean they won’t like fresh green beans cooked another way.

Healthy eating for a whole family certainly requires a little extra effort and creativity, but it pretty much always pays off in the long run.

If you’re concerned about your child’s weight, take a look at the St.Vincent L.I.F.E. for Kids program or contact us at the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence.

Weight loss surgery is typically not recommended for children, but there are other supervised weight loss programs that can help both you and your family get on a better track toward a healthier lifestyle.
