An Interview with Dr. Patel

What has surprised you most about parenting? How hard it is!

How do you get your kids to eat healthy food? By also eating healthy. Also by introducing healthy foods from the beginning. I believe that the entire family has to eat healthy and avoid unhealthy foods. I model that behavior.

How do you work exercise into your family’s life? I choose activities that involve exercise in a fun way, such as going hiking, going to the park, limiting screen time, and spending time outdoors often.

How do you recharge your batteries? Getting massages and watching movies with my husband after the kids have gone to bed.
