Tips for Creating Healthy Families

Living well and healthy lives can’t just be something you talk about. It involves choices and discipline to keep those choices in place. If families want to be healthy they need to be proactive – but it’s hard though to know where to begin, especially if healthy choices haven’t been a priority.

It’s never too late to start

For adults and children alike, healthy living is essential. Parents need to pave the way in modeling healthy eating and being active. Even if hasn’t been a habit in the past, it’s never too late to start! Ease in with small steps and goals that are easy attain. Be intentional about changing habits and find food and activities that the whole family will be on board with. This will set everyone up for success.

Pick through the pantry

A good place to start is in your cupboards. Go through your fridge and pantry and take out sugar-sweetened drinks, fried foods and high calorie snacks. Not having them available will make getting healthy a lot easier. This is especially important if you or your children have diabetes. Encourage water consumption and healthy snacks. Making food fun isn’t hard, so get your kids involved in picking out good snacks and making new recipes together.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to break the bank. Plan ahead and make recipes that can stretch over into multiple meals. Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season and buy foods in bulk when you can.

Get off the couch!

Healthy eating alone is not going to cut it. Limit TV time and other activities that keep your family sedentary. It’s recommended that children get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. This is a great time for the family to try out new sports, hiking trails or games together!

RATED BEST DALLAS PODIATRIST FOR YOUR FOOT & ANKLE CARE NEEDS
"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
