How to Get your Kids to Eat more Healthy Food!
Hi, I am Craig Burton. I have been a nutritionist and health coach for over 20 years. One of my biggest passions is coaching families and the next generation: our children. They are our future and nowadays sadly facing many challenges towards being healthy. UNICEF recently stated that one in three children in the Western World is not growing well because of malnutrition. This form of malnutrition does not come from starvation, but from a diet high in processed food, which lacks essential nutrients.
Why are our children eating so much junk food today? Because they are surrounded by it everyday and most kids would say lollies, crisps, soft drinks, cakes and pastries taste great. So for many parents it is like fighting a losing battle. But as I remind my clients including parents – health is about consistancy not perfection and balance is the key. Like the 80/20 Rule: 80% good food and 20% bad food. This will generally ensure your child will grow and develop well. But sadly most kids today are around 50/50 or even less, and this leads to malnutrition in essential nutrients.
Let me show you how to easily create Healthy Eating Habits that will ensure your children’s and family’s health. This program also has the potential to improve your children’s school results because healthy food leads to better focus, concentraiton and stamina – all the essentials needed to excel at school.
The Healthy Eating Habits Program is a 6 week online course that I will personally support you through every week to help your children and family develop Healthier Eating Habits. You will be learning practical strategies from Day 1 that could make a big difference in ensuring your kids eat 80/20 and get what their bodies need to be healthy. This program not only explains which foods to focus on, but most importantly it gives the tools, strategies and child-friendly tricks to help your children understand why. I will teach you how to help your children become more mindful eaters and enjoy the exploration and discovery of real food.
Here is my Daughter Emily over 2 years ago making her ‘Artist Plate’. Let me help you bring as much joy to eating Real Food for your children as possible.

Ongoing Support through an Interactive Forum
Research shows that group participation in a health program has many benefits when compared to a person going it alone. One of the methods of recreating this group-like atmosphere is through the use of an Interactive Forum. Therefore, I created a space for you to ask questions, but also make comments and get support and motivation from fellow participants.
In my opinion, one of the most underrated aspects of long-term success is accountability, and there is nothing better than surrounding yourself with like-minded parents to help with that.
Bonus: Free Ebooks for the Parents to Get Super Fit and Healthy
“Over the years Craig Burton has played a vital role in advising the Food Service Committee at HeadStart International School. Craig has volunteered his time to consult the committee on issues such as minimizing the use of sugar, choosing healthy seasonings, and promoting whole foods in school lunches. Another very useful way that Craig has helped to improve awareness for healthy eating at school has been by recommending ways to educate the students about how to make good food choices. Thanks to Craig’s suggestions the school now has many charts and pictures that introduce children to the negative effects of eating too much sugar and promotes having a balanced and healthy diet.”

“I have been following Craig’s Health and Fitness advice for over 10 years now. During this period, Craig has demonstrated a depth of knowledge and a genuine belief in me to succeed that I have never seen before. This is a unique quality and skill set I have only experienced with Craig, which is why he is the only guy I will work with for myself, and my family’s health needs.
As a married father of two young children and both parents busy professionals, time is something we have too little of and the first thing that suffers is the quality of food we all eat. It is all too easy to fall back into old habits and having access to someone like Craig removes that guilt we both feel and he gives us that unique support to get back on track with a healthier lifestyle. We cannot recommend Craig highly enough.”

You can choose to join the Weekly Webinars where I will review the content (from the videos and Course Manual) and answer your questions. However, you can also write your questions in the Forum.
