Healthy Parents: Be That Mom

We’ve had some great feedback on Facebook & Twitter from these awesome nutrition blogs for parental behaviors from Heather Bauer at Nu-Train. In fact, thinking about whole family health and happiness is what Sassy is all about—happy parents mean happy children. So, we’ve covered the importance of a healthy buddy and the importance of planning ahead for birthday parties, and focused on the behaviors of healthy eating rather than calories or the exact foods to eat. Welcoming back Heather for Tip #7:

OSD: 7 is a lucky number. Give us a good one, One Sassy Nutritionist! 
H: Okay, here you go! Lucky 7!

Healthy Parents: Avoid Skipping Meals

So far this month we’ve heard about everything from packing snacks to avoiding being the human garbage disposal from One Sassy Nutritionist - Heather Bauer from Nu-Train. Her tips are super practical and focus more on the behaviors around healthy eating rather than telling us what to eat. That’s what One Sassy Doctor loves about Heather, she “gets it”—that diets are short term and habits become part of our lives.

Healthy Parents: Find A Healthy Buddy

This month we’ve been hearing about parental nutrition from Heather Bauer from Nu-Train and learning all kinds of simple, easy ways to be healthy. What we’re learning is it’s just as much about the behaviors surrounding our eating habits as it is what we’re actually eating. It’s not about diets—it’s about habits and modeling those habits for children.
