Best Foods For Dads
I take the title of “Daddy’s Girl” seriously. It’s more than simply wrapping your Dad around your finger to get him to do what (give you money) when (all the time) you say (now). It also means taking care of him. Doing what you can to keep him healthy and happy as well.
Now that I’m a mom I see that my own little girl is truly a Daddy’s Girl. And I love it. So I must do my part to ensure her hero stays healthy and happy. Keeping Dad healthy starts with a great diet and men’s nutritional needs can vary from women's. When it comes to fighting cancer, lowering blood pressure and having great heart health there are some foods every Dad needs in his diet.
