Tonya is the mother of three girls—and a disaster in the kitchen. To compensate for her lack of cooking skills, Tonya says she resorts to packing peanut butter and jelly, chips and cookies in their lunches and always promises dessert if the girls finish their dinners. "Bribe 'em with sugar," she says.

Now, Tonya says she worries her girls are developing unhealthy eating habits and negative body images. "I don't want them to be a teenager looking back and saying, 'Mom, look what you did to me,'" she says. "I want the girls to be in control of their own body and know if I'm helping them make healthier choices and if I'm helping them learn to make healthier choices—what a great gift for them for a lifetime."
