My future children aren't even a twinkle in my eye yet, but my fiance and I already have aspects of their life planned out. We know between the two of us they are going to be prone to weight problems, and that terrifies us. We don't want our children to go through everything that we have. We were talking the other day about getting them involved in sports and other healthy activities at a young age. We also talked about implementing what we call Family Exercise Time, but what they would simply know as some fun activity that we all do together. What are some fun and creative ways to pull this off?
I fear one of my biggest hurdles in keeping my children healthy is going to be to get them to eat vegetables. Sadly, my fiance does not eat them. AT ALL. He refuses to. How am I going to get my kids to eat them when they don't see their father doing it. My mother did buy me a cookbook on how to hide vegetables from children and I'm hoping that it will work on him too.
I just already feel like the odds are stacked against my children. But I pledge to do my best by them! Does anyone else think about this sort of thing too?
