How can I help my child to stay (or become) lean and healthy?
When children eat mostly whole foods with plenty of vegetables and fruit
and do regular physical activity, they naturally gravitate towards a
healthy body weight and stay that way. The single most effective way to
help your child to eat well is to eat well yourself. If most of the foods
you eat at home are nutrient-rich, minimally processed foods, your child
will automatically eat that way, too. Try to find active pursuits that you
and your child can enjoy together. This will help both of you
attain and maintain a healthy weight.

"I COULDN'T BE MORE THRILLED OR GRATEFUL. Amanda, you and your program have saved me from bashing my head against a wall for years to come with dieting, loathing myself and not trusting myself and my body. I couldn’t be more thrilled or grateful and the effects of what you have been teaching have spread right the way through my life, far beyond eating.
