HomeFun.co encourages families to live healthy lifestyles, especially during Thanksgiving and Christmastime when appetizers and tv snacks are literally everywhere. People of all ages crave sweets, but youngsters are often oblivious to the downsides of sugary foods. To keep things from getting out of hand, prompted by suggestions from WCCO on how to distinguish benign from fattening hors d'oeuvres, HomeFun released advice for parents during the holidays.
Christmas is a time of fun, and kids don't like to hear about refraining from cookies and cupcakes during all the festivities. Depending on the ingredients, however, holiday favorites can be either high or low in fat. When white flours and sugars are substituted with their wheat and brown counterparts, it significantly reduces the caloric content in baked goods.
HomeFun.com was quoted as saying, "Of course, sugary foods need not comprise the fully array of holiday treats. Kids might pass on salads and other greenery whenever chocolate lies in reach, but there is one color in the fruit and berry spectrum that also entertains the sweet tooth: red. Strawberries, raspberries and cherries are healthy foods which also happen to feature in many popular deserts. As alternatives to chocolate and caramel, red treats are healthier for youngsters and grownups alike."
Children are likely to grow up unhealthy when raised by parents who overeat and watch dish network channels around the clock rather than enjoying in moderation. It is therefore important for parents to eat healthy foods and refrain from idle, sedentary habits. By exhibiting moderation in food consumption, today's parents can pass good habits on down to the next generation.
