This Father’s Day, I suggest that you show your Dad that you care by giving him the gift of good health! Here’s some fun gift ideas for you to consider…
Grilling for Father’s Day
Who said grilling had to be unhealthy? You can learn how to cook up this mouthwatering Fillet Mignon and enjoy this yummy meal with your Dad. It’s made with lots of healthy and fresh ingredients and has only 303 calories. Eat with healthy side dishes and enjoy!

Games that promote Health
If your Dad likes games, get him moving with the Wii Fit™ Plus or the Wii Sports Resort! Both of these systems will allow Dad (and the rest of the family!) to have a lot of fun while burning some extra calories.
Healthy Shoes for Dad
Does your Dad like to run, jog, or walk? Give your Dad Vibram Fivefinger Shoes! They promote a healthy posture, they are comfortable on your feet, and allow you to have a natural and healthy arch in your foot – which a lot of shoes ruin! Your Dad can wear these Vibrams as he is just walking around or when he is running a marathon. Very versatile and probably the best shoes you could buy.
Not digging the look? I know, they take some getting used to, but there are different colors to choose from, and once you realize how amazing they are for your feet, the look won’t matter so much for you. Also, I suggest reading Born to Run to fully appreciate how amazing these shoes really are.
By the way, my Dad is totally awesome and already has a pair of these shoes : )
Exercise with Dad
Is Dad trying to be healthier? Trying to lose weight? You can offer to be Dad’s exercise buddy! Studies show that if you have someone to exercise with, they will be more likely to follow through. You can start out simple, like go on a 30 minute walk with your Dad. This will be a great way to enjoy your Dad’s company and get in shape – together!
I would like to wish all of the Dads out there a Happy Father’s Day!
