Well, we're gonna go ahead and say this is one GREAT parenting technique!
Brooke Burke has four kids: Neriah, 12, Sierra, 10, Rain, 6, and Shaya, 4, and wants to be sensitive and encouraging around them!
Not only is she a healthy and happy role model through her fitness and cooking, but she wants to be a positive one too!
Here's what she says:
"I always tell other parents to lead by example. My kids know I'm always working out and I love to cook. I'm always preparing healthy meals. I think it's also about giving them healthy options, which is so, so important. My little ones, especially, grocery shop with me. They're in the kitchen. They love to cook."
This includes watching what comes OUT of her mouth, not just what they're putting in!
"I try to never use words like 'fat' or 'diet.' I try to choose my words carefully with my kids. It's just about making good choices and enjoying what we eat and making delicious flavorful foods that are healthy. I'm just teaching them about being healthy and strong, not about being thin."
So fab! We LOVE this idea!
If we start teaching proper health techniques early, we could really change the world from the route we're on!
So inspiring, Brooke! We hope you continue to feel better!!
