Families are a source of emotional support, love, security and protection. Healthy family relationships result in happy and secure children and give parents the ultimate reward of being important in the life of a child.
Healthy family relationships often translate to healthy eating and exercise habits as well. According to Kids Health, families who engage in healthy eating and exercise together will ultimately become a healthier and stronger family unit. Parents are encouraged to model and explain to children why eating certain foods is healthy and how exercise can benefit all aspects of a healthy life.(Source)
