Tip of the Day
Eat Right All Summer Long
Don't let your family's healthy eating habits take a vacation this summer. Summer break is a great opportunity to spend time with your kids and help them understand the importance of healthy eating.
Here are some tips to involve the entire family in the healthy eating process:
- Bring your kids to the grocery store and let them pick out healthy foods they like, especially a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables during the summer months.
- Have them help in the kitchen when preparing meals with age-appropriate tasks, letting the older kids chop and cook foods and the younger kids mix ingredients and set the table.
- Most importantly, sit down as a family and eat together.
Along with eating healthfully, remind your kids about the importance of physical activity and urge them to get outside and be active.
