CAMPBELL FAMILY NUTRITION JOURNEY: THE INITIAL MEETING
Understand Their WHY
Eating healthy is simple, not easy. Before creating a plan for clients, nutrition coaches need to understand the WHY behind the goals.
For the Campbell family, their goals are to become healthier in the new year, eat more meals at home, and to help their kids understand what eating healthy really looks like.
Clark said, “I don’t want my kids learning what healthy looks like at the age of 35.”
Let's Make A Plan
Before creating a plan, your coach needs to determine your baseline and where you are starting from. It’s important that the entire family is bought into the plan, so they are all involved throughout the entire process.
Emma (their daughter) looked through the brand new, cookbook and picked out 8-10 recipes that she thought looked good. These recipes are what they will prep to create balanced meals for weeks to come.
Creating A Grocery List
After picking out three staples for the week, Jason and Kristen do an inventory of what they have and make a grocery list.
Nicole & Clark went grocery shopping to buy everything on the list.
While grocery shopping, Nicole talked about easy substitutes and healthy alternatives. Nicole also taught Clark the difference between cuts of meat and what the numbers really mean on the package when reading food labels.
Emma even helped pick out some of the produce!
Kids In The Kitchen
Kids love getting involved in the kitchen and making recipes from the Kids Cookbook!
Getting kids involved in the entire process increases buy-in. Jason cooked with the kids, while Clark and Nicole made Egg Roll In A Bowl.
Pantry Clean Out
Next, we went through the pantry! Kristen and Clark learned how to read a nutrition facts label and understand what balanced meals and snacks look like.
Like most parents, they were shocked to see how much added sugar was in the foods that they thought were healthy.
Eating Healthy Doesn't Have To Be Complicated
The goal of the Family Nutrition Program is to take the stress out of eating healthy and empower families to make health a way of life one step at a time. Follow along with the Campbell Family on Instagram.
