When it was time for my husband and I to become a family. We made a promise to ourselves that we would try our best in raising our child. Back then, it seemed simple enough. We thought we were ready but in reality, no one is really ready for parenthood.
Our child had become our number one priority. It was all about if and how long he was sleeping, what he was eating, if had a bowel movement, if he was in pain, etcetera… etcetera… etcetera. We had become consumed by everything our child wanted and needed.
Now that our son is old enough to communicate to us when he’s hungry, tired or in pain, our focus has shifted to the food we eat as a family together, the activities we take part in physically and mentally. Setting a positive example is our main priority.
Recently, Knowledge Universe joined the fight against childhood obesity, and announced the Grow Happy initiative with the Grow Happy blog. The Grow Happy blog is the perfect resource for parents who are looking for information on how to raise a healthy family. Helpful information such as kid-friendly recipes, and The Goal Tracker are essential tools for raising a healthy family. Focusing on three very important areas to lead a healthy lifestyle, the Goal Tracker provides a simple plan to follow and improve on those fundamental categories. With helpful tips on making smart food choices, adding physical activity to our daily routine and incorporating an educational moment with our child, we are on our way to improving our family’s well being and sticking to that leading-by-example promise we made ourselves.
