Are You Giving Your Child Diabetes?

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady’s diet consists of 80% vegetables and whole grains, 20% lean meats, and no processed sugar. Their children are used to their strict diet, which doesn’t seem out of the norm, and when they tried a piece of Halloween candy this past Halloween, they didn’t like it. They are a great example of how healthy eating habits start at home because children mimic their parents, so the earlier you adapt a healthy behavior, the less it will seem like a punishment.

According to the American Diabetes Association, people of Hispanic and Latino origin are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease, which come hand in hand. Many times, as parents we forget how much children look up to us and how much they want to be like us, act like us, and even eat like us.
