Parents who are unhealthy do influence their children's lifestyle as it is the parents who are preparing meals for their children. But are they actually preparing healthy meals for their children? Or are they just going to fast food places or feeding them junk food. Along with making their children eat healthy are they making their kids do a few hours of physical activity each day rather than letting them sit on the couch at home and watch television or play video games. Also if children see their parents eating junk food and being lazy and not getting outside then they think that it is okay to do the same, children look up to parents, and what parents do the children will copy.
