Get Over the New York City Hurdles and Get Back to Health

More children in the US are becoming inactive and overweight, with type 2 diabetes rising among this age group. Let's explore some of these hurdles to eating healthy for children in New York City. 

High Stress and Limited Time

High stress and limited time can make healthy food challenging to access. Often, parents are constantly working, and by the time they're available to eat with their kids, they don't have the time or energy to cook a healthy meal. Instead, they'll often resort to fast food, making cultivating good eating habits difficult. 

Too Many Options

…And not enough of them healthy. We live in a world where there are so many food options, and it's tough – for parents and their kids alike – to know what to choose. Navigating which foods are truly beneficial and what will work for you and your body is not easy.
