I know for me I have a family history or various diseases that I had to change the way that I eat to try to prolong what is possible. In doing so I have to make sure that I prepare a certain diet for my children as well. I know that they do not want to eat this way all the time but if we have good habits now, they will carry it over when they are on their own with their own families. I cook a lot and I make sure that it is healthy and as balanced as possible. I have limited the amount of empty calories I prepare. Though it will be hard it is worth it in the long run for the family as a whole. So adopt a new way of eating because it will truly impact the way the family lives now and in the future.
