A mom who never wants her picture taken or constantly hides behind her kids during snapshots is sending a loud and clear message: I don't like myself. We all want our children to develop a healthy relationship with food. But nurturing a positive attitude about food and your body can be challenge.
In honor of Mother's Day, women's health retreat Green Mountain at Fox Run
is hosting a blogging contest in the hopes of inspiring women to post on this important issue.
To participate, simply write a post on your blog about how your relationship with food and/or your body image has shaped your child's. Alternatively, you could write about how your mom's relationship with food and her body affected your attitude about the same. Include a link to our Mother-Daughter-Sister month
at Green Mountain so your readers can learn more about how we help women who struggle with eating or maintaining a healthy weight. Our FitBriefing “Feeding Your Daughters (& Sons) Well
” provides information to help you get started.
Deadline to enter is May 20, 2009
Prizes and Awards:
Grand Prize: The blogger whose post generates the most meaningful comments will receive a one week stay at our women's healthy weight loss retreat in Vermont. (Certificate valid for six months. Blackout dates may apply.)
Runners Up: The first 30 bloggers to post according to the guidelines above will receive a copy of our cookbook, Recipes for Healthy Living.
Total Value of Prizes: More than $3,000
Final winners will be announced on May 26th, 2009
