Families Be Fit Together

Are you an overweight parent who doesn’t want your child to follow in your footsteps? Are you concerned that bad dietary and exercise habits may already be ingrained in your child’s routine?  If so, then tomorrow’s Twitter Chat is for you.  The fourth in a series, we’ll be tweeting for Marjorie Wilson, an education specialist with Children’s Diabetes & Endocrinology.  Marjorie will respond to questions and share her insight into how to get and stay fit as a family.  Topics will include:

  • Managing a picky eater
  • Staying active together (even during the winter)
  • Tips and tricks to control lunch purchases and school snacking
  • Strategies to help your child lose weight and boost their self-esteem
