  • "According to one recent large-scale study, a STAGGERING 40 PERCENT of children ages six through 11 have elevated cholesterol levels. And more children than ever are now at risk for high blood pressure. The risks only multiply when it comes to the third of American children who are overweight or obese: SEVENTY PERCENT of obese children have at least one precursor for heart disease." ____________________________________________🥦 Not only is this NOT ok, it is imperative that we take action to change the diets of our children NOW. What we put on the end of their forks matters, and it matters deeply. A bowl of sugary marshmallow treats for breakfast is NOT magically delicious - nor is a diet high in processed meats and junk food. As adults, we often search for the healthiest option on the menu when we dine out and then order the worst food possible from the children's menu for our kids. This is crazy. Please feed them REAL food - their health is what determines our future. #healthykids #healthyworld #fork...

  • You don’t need a New Years resolution to make a fresh start. A new beginning can happen with your very next bite. It’s actually quite simple: Eat REAL food, mostly plants, and you’ll quickly experience what “nourish to flourish” really feels like. What we put on the end of our forks has more healing power than anything we find in a bottle of pills... #forkdisease #nourishtoflourish #eatrealfood #healthykids #healthyworld #TheNoblePathFoundation
