In brief: Serve healthy foods

At home ; don't bring junk food into the house.
Plan active family activities. Insist on consistent bedtimes.

In brief: Be a role model

Nothing speaks louder than actions.
Create a healthy home environment : sleep, exercise, nutrition and safety. Get good information and avoid fads. It helps to be flexible since teenagers will resist authority . Avoid becoming a bff since this is not your job as a mother. Do as you say !
