How To Prevent 1 Billion People From Being OverweightBy
Living Healthy – Healthy Eating
With over a billion people in the world who are overweight, do you want to know one skill that can help prevent your family from getting fat AND also help make your family healthier at the same time?
Here it is. The single most important skill that a mom and/or dad can learn to prevent obesity and increase the health of their children is to learn how to bake and cook HEALTHY meals, versus buying processed foods and/or eating fast food.
Believe it or not, healthy cooking and healthy baking can become so much fun that you will wonder why you didn’t do it before. The satisfaction is immense when you watch your kids eat foods you cooked from scratch that are also healthy for them.
Tim Lang, professor of Food Policy at the City University of London, backed the report that over 1 billion people in the world are overweight and one of the best ways to help prevent this is to cook healthy meals versus buying processed foods.”
Healthy Baking and Basic Cooking Skills Increase The Health of Kids
When a mom and/or dad do not have have any knowledge of how to bake healthy foods, or cook healthy meals, it is very easy to buy nothing but processed foods in the stores, and/or to eat out at fast food restaurants that are not good for your health. When you buy processed foods such as lasagna in the box, prepared mexican food in a box, processed muffins or cookies from most mixes, you are not increasing the health of your family with these foods.
A Huffington Post article reported that 28% of people in the U.S. do not know how to cook. I wonder if the statistics are actually higher if you believe you are “cooking” when you buy a box of lasagna at the store and put it in the oven, or using a pancake mix to make pancakes. This is not cooking, just like it is not baking when you take a cookie mix and add eggs to it. There are no health benefits of this option.
Learning How To Bake or Cook Healthy Foods Is Not Difficult And The Health Benefits Are Enormous
As a culture we are loosing the knowledge of how to cook, yet there are so many meals that are simple to make!
Happy healthy baking and cooking!
