Did you know studies show: Obesity among children and adolescents has tripled over the past three decades? With childhood obesity is on the rise, it's mind-blowing to think under-nutrition in children is still unresolved! Children are exposed to high-fat, high-sugar, high-salt, energy-dense, and micronutrient-poor foods, which tend to be lower in cost but also lower in nutrient quality. These dietary patterns, in conjunction with lower levels of physical activity, result in sharp increases in childhood obesity while under-nutrition issues remain unsolved. So getting healthy foods into children is now more important then ever. So Sugary Holiday desserts do not help the obesity problem for anyone (Childern or Adults).

The goal with these healthy recipes is to show that eating healthy doesn't have to be a struggle and can be delicious and good for you and the kiddos simultaneously. Thus, our mission is to not only guide you to improving your physical health but also create a healthy mindset and healthy finances so you can be truly present in life to enjoy what matters most to you. Liberating parents for love empowers parents to be truly present in the moment, with their children to empower them to grow up into tomorrow’s leaders.

Remember it's not about depriving yourself of delicious food, it's about being mindful of your choices, portion sizes, and coming up with healthier alternatives that are just as tasty, if not better. Thus, our mission is to not only guide you to improving your physical health but also create a healthy mindset.
