You don’t need to go on a diet to watch your diet! Being mindful of the food that enters and leaves your home is one of the most simple and effective ways to Unjunk your family’s eating behaviour.
To grow up healthy, kids need real food that’s real good. But we know it’s not always easy to choose the right foods, especially when junk food companies spend millions and millions of dollars on marketing, advertising and sponsorships trying to persuade your kids to consume their unhealthy products.
And it’s also not easy when our days seem to get busier and busier, and getting the right information and advice about health and nutrition is often confusing.
As mums and dads, we need to be role models by making healthy choices for our families, so our kids grow up with healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
But we also need governments at all levels to take action to support parents where junk food industry practices undermines parental roles. The relentless and widespread marketing of unhealthy food and drink to children needs to stop.
