Last night, Dr. Drew talked with “Extra” host and former “Saved by the Bell” star Mario Lopez about his commitment to public health and fitness education. Lopez believes that the key to health in America lies with families practicing responsible eating. This doesn’t mean fad diets or intense exercise. Instead, Lopez recommends teaching kids to be healthy from an early age and sharing time in the kitchen with family.
Mario Lopez had this to say about family health:
“Parents are the biggest examples, I don’t have to tell you that, and the number one most important room in the house is the kitchen. So much takes place there. For example, we want to practice the lost art of the family dinner… we want to get kids involved in the cooking process.”
