Explaining to your kids the benefits of health is much easier than telling them they have type 2 diabetes! Healthy habits are crucial! Set a good example for your children now before it's too late. I'm sure we all know the type of foods that our younger generation loves to eat aren't the healthiest, but you can certainly moderate the amount that they intake. Exercise infront of your children. It's very important to be a role model and as we know the younger they are the more they like to copy things. If you can get them to commit to a healthy lifestyle by setting and living one then you will make a tremendous difference in both your life and theirs as well.
