Happy Fathers’ Day

I saw a number of men pushing strollers and out for walks and bike rides with their kids yesterday.  I was on my walk (2.3 miles – not much – but consistency is key!)

Dads:  after your kids let you sleep in (yeah, right!), maybe going for some outdoor activity with the young people is a great way to celebrate.

Remember – you help set your children’s habits and health for the future.  And future fathers:  if you eat a high-fat diet, that can make for changes in your sperm that can make it harder to conceive.  Also, in animal experiments,  when fathers eat a high fat diet, their daughters have higher chances of getting diabetes – even if the daughters eat a normal diet!

Happy Fathers’ Day!
