Addressing Childhood Obesity with a Personal Chef


In America today, one third of children are overweight or obese. This is a number that is continuing to rise and healthy lifestyle habits are needed to fight this staggering statistic. For working parents, it can be very difficult to make sure children are eating right, as most of the time they are getting home first.


Unhealthy foods are often the quickest and easiest to prepare. That is why many families tend to rely on them so often. It may be time to ask for some help. What better investment is there than one that helps your children live a longer, healthier, happier life? Having a personal chef can do wonders for your entire family- especially your children. There are several qualities about an in-home personal chef that will help battle childhood obesity:


Education:  Most chefs are formally trained and educated, and can therefore teach you and your children healthy eating. They have knowledge of what the best foods and ingredients are for growing children, what foods children should not consume, and the moderation to use in servings. They can give you suggestions and tips, while educating you and you children on healthy eating.


Child Friendly: Personal chefs that have worked in homes before are used to kids running around and can accommodate them and involve them in the cooking process. They can even supervise the kids if needed. Most children love being able to help in the kitchen. The ability to do this will get them excited about what they are making! It’s a fun project and it instills healthy cooking from a young age!


Picky Eaters: A lot of children are picky about what they eat. Some avoid any green food at all costs. In home personal chefs are very experienced cooking for picky eaters. They are geniuses when it comes to sneaking in those healthy, nutrient-rich vegetables. Your little ones will not be able to resist the presentation your chef lays out for them.


Flexibility: In home personal chefs are extremely flexible. They can drop off food once a week, cook in your home every day, or cook in your home part time. They accommodate your schedule and what you need. Not only can they improve your childrens' health, but yours as well! Hectic schedules make it very difficult to eat healthy. A personal chef can provide you with healthy options for you and your family that you are sure to enjoy!
