VIDEO: How to Talk to Your Kids About Healthy Food, According to Jillian Michaels

February 18, 2016

As notorious as they are for letting parental wisdom go in one ear and out the other, there’s a certain conversation that you absolutely must have with your kids, no matter how difficult it may be.

No, not that conversation. We’re referring to “the talk” about healthy eating. To some kids, “healthy snack” is an oxymoron, especially if they’ve gotten used to the school cafeteria menu and vending-machine goodies. Luckily, fitness guru Jillian Michaels knows all the tricks to getting through to them when it comes to this delicate subject.

Press play to get Michaels’ advice for parents who want to set their kids up for a lifetime of healthy eating. (Spoiler: Cam Newton, Stephen Curry, and Taylor Swift might be able to help.)
