Anyone who has tended a garden knows that the right combination of nutrients is essential to healthy, thriving plants. The same holds true for our children, whose growing bodies demand the right fuel for proper development.
Unfortunately, as families try to deal with ever-increasing pressures on their time, nutrition is taking a backseat to speed and convenience. High fat, nutritionally questionable ready-to-eat and take-out meals are the favored choice for the family dinner table. In fact, studies show that just 38% of meals are actually “homemade.”
Add to this the ramifications of a new style of eating created by sedentary kids who prefer watching a flickering TV or computer screen to playing in the fresh air and it’s clear to see why childhood obesity is on the rise. Grazing — the habit of eating whatever, whenever — can add 500-1,000 calories a day to a child’s diet. Sugary sodas can add another 200 calories per can. And with teen boys drinking an average of three sodas per day, it’s no wonder our kids are getting fatter.
We at Reliv believe that by working together, we can change the course of our children’s future by helping them to make healthy lifestyle choices now. And, with proper supplementation, we can fortify their growing bodies with the nutrients they need to prevent the catastrophic trend toward childhood obesity and the development of serious illnesses later in life.
Healthy kids become healthy adults. Reliv is committed to doing everything we can to help you help your kids be the best they can be. A great first step is to give them Reliv Now for Kids. The formula has been specially formulated for children’s optimal development. And with LunaRich, it’s better than ever!
To Your Health,
