Episode #124: Healthy Kids, Healthy Parents – A Checklist

What behaviors are you modeling for your children? Have you ever stopped to think about how your habits and behaviors impact your children’s lives?

Take a listen as Amanda and I explore the 5 pillars of health. What they are and how we can use them as a basis to create healthy routines for ourselves and our children.

Tune in if you want to learn the tips and tools that create healthy behaviors and healthy bodies.

Our goal is to have you use this checklist as a way to step back and reflect on the habits and behaviors that you as a parent can adopt and your children can emulate.

As parents, we are the models for what our children mimic, and creating healthy, consistent routines and lifestyle choices will have a positive impact on you and your children for a lifetime.

Take a listen, this is a great podcast to keep in your toolbox!
