This looks like the year of eating healthily, and there’s never been a better time for you and your family to make good nutrition an integral part of life. Contemporary food trends are heading towards consuming wholesome meals, preferably made with local seasonal produce. You could maybe even explore becoming a ‘flexitarian’, which is basically a vegetarian who dabbles with chicken and fish.
Thankfully, there are a host of restaurants cropping up (p32) offering all manner of vegetarian and vegan to dairy- and gluten-free meals and desserts. Child-friendly restaurants (p11) are also jumping on the eat-clean bandwagon and creating menus which are healthy, and more importantly pass muster with even the most anti-vegetable child.
Eating well and being fit go together, so instead of your regular activities, get the kids to try out some atypical sports (p43) like rugby, fencing, hip hop dance classes, or join them on a Junior Hash run. We’ve also sourced awesome bath and skincare products (p56), which are organic, eco-friendly, gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, and will make your little one smell wonderful!
You don’t have to be a tree-hugger to want to eat clean, cut out meat or use organic products; it’s all part of leading healthier lives. And, encouraging your children to want to be fit and healthy is a parental obligation… the tree hugging and granola crunching can come later.
