What do you do to teach your daughter about having a healthy body image?

Bethenny Frankel explains how to model a healthy body image

A healthy body image starts in the home, and Bethenny Frankel explains that moms can and should lead by example.

Bethenny says, "I don’t believe in teaching kids at a young age about body image. I believe you should lead by example. I never talk about dieting, weight, how things fit or being bloated. I think kids should have a wide variety in their diet, including vegetables, greens and beans. Don’t deprive them of treats — but don’t focus on them, either."
