Jennifer Hudson has been on the healthy path for years and is now teaching her son how to maintain a diet and exercise routine. The singer and actress recently shared her tricks of getting David Jr. active with her Moms feed. Check out what she had to say!


Utilize the fruit bowl.

“When I travel for work—which is often—I make sure that there’s a fruit bowl waiting for us at the hotel. It’s good for me because I always have a healthy snack available, but it’s even better for David Jr. because, unlike me, he doesn’t even think about the chips and candy bars in the vending machine down the hall. He gets to choose anything he wants from this bowl full of stuff.”

Make workout time fun time.

“I don’t love working out. But I do love spending time with my fiancé  and son. So we go out for walks and we play a lot of basketball together.  It’s a special time together – talking, laughing, playing games. Sure, it’s exercise, but it doesn’t feel like a chore to David Jr.—or to me, for that matter!”

Get everyone involved with dinner preparation.

“Sometimes instead of ordering out, we make our own pizza together. We always have a lot of veggies for toppings, so he can be creative and try new vegetables in a fun, interesting way. Plus, I love that he’s learning to make his own food. And best of all, when it’s over, we get to eat delicious pizza.”
