Examples of Suggestions for Healthy Eating
- Instead of serving your kids Fruit Loops for breakfast, instead give them oatmeal topped with sweet, delicious fresh blueberries or banana slices.
- Instead of drinking fruit juice straight from the container, mix it with two or three parts of water. This option provides a sweet, delicious beverage with fewer calories than plain fruit juice and without all the artificial ingredients and sugar found in soda and other sweetened beverages.
- Make meal time a family event. Ban computers, television, IPODS, etc. during meal times. Focus on spending time you're your family and enjoying your food.
