... to model a healthy lifestyle for your daughter? How do you do this?
(Think eating, exercise, smoking, drinking - you can even take it further with things like finances, relationships, education, etc.)

 That would be a long detailed answer lol but yes I think its important to teach by example. Kids are more likely to do what they see you doing than if you just talk the talk but dont walk the walk.

It's very important to me. Eating healthy, having an active lifestyle, not smoking, and minimal drinking.

I model healthy eating, and she helps me cook. I always have fresh ingredients around. I make sure she is surrounded by fresh fruits and veggies and meats.

It is very important. If they start at an early age it will be their life style. We go on 5 mile family walks, cook from scratch, eat healthly, etc.

It's very important that my children see us living right so that they make good decisions for themselves.

We are all healthy adults-

My daughter is extremely focused on healthy habits and nutrition- my son is very active and fit, but is not as focused on his diet.

 Very important. I want to give my children the best chance in life and by doing that I need to arm them with all the information and examples they need : )

It is important. What the child sees in early years stays with them.
