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.
