This is the issue. If you weigh yourself and do not like the number you see, you feel less motivated to make healthy choices. Often this causes people to panic, self-berate and emotionally overeat. This toxic cycle of bingeing and restriction causes people to have a very unhealthy relationship with food and their bodies.

Food Is Not 'Healthy'

I don't mean its flavours and the latest hot spots to eat, but rather the traits of the food itself. This applies particularly to the use of the word 'healthy' - which I have seen used to describe everything from kale to low-fat processed foods.

For many families, the freezer has become a place of storage as much as it has a means of preserving food. Boxes full of processed meat covered in orange breadcrumbs. The odd chicken breast that fell out of a multi-pack. The token packet of frozen peas.

I'm sure you've heard all of this before and a lot of this list certainly challenges me. My point is that Christmas doesn't have to end up with piles of debt. It doesn't have to be about being so busy you don't enjoy it. It doesn't have to be about giving your children everything on their Christmas list.

I wish nutrition had been more permanently on the curriculum when I was a teacher. It's a subject that's easy to grasp - more so than reading and writing - for many children.
