  • If we want a healthy future we MUST do a better job at raising healthy kids. It’s ironic how adults will take their time in a restaurant, searching for the healthiest options, and then casually order the absolute worst possible choice for their children from the kids menu. As our most important and precious commodity, shouldn’t our children be getting the very best food? If we could get rid of “kid food” vs “adult food” and focus on REAL FOOD instead, we’d be making a good start towards eradicating childhood obesity, epidemic numbers of T2 diabetes and lifestyle related chronic disease. There's no time like the present to start reinforcing our future with generations of healthy kids! #healthykids #healthyworld #forkdisease #nourishtoflourish #TheNoblePathFoundation #eatREALfood
