Daily Tips to Help Your Family Eat Better

If you and your family are trying to eat better, you probably know that health is a life-long habit. How we eat every day is a huge factor in our health, and having the foundation of a healthy diet will set you up for success. Here are 5 daily tips to help your family eat better and establish a healthy routine.

Daily Tips to Help Your Family Eat Better

  1. Try Something New. Make eating produce fun for kids. Let them pick out a new fruit or vegetable every week at the store. Figure out together how to cook or prepare it.
  2. Choose Whole Grains. You do not have to cut out carbs. Choose whole-wheat or rye bread, popcorn, oatmeal and whole-grain cereal to increase fiber and nutrients.
  3. Be a Role Model. Kids pick up on many cues from parents. Make healthy eating fun, not a chore, and kids will follow. Getting kids involved from a young age will empower them to make healthy choices.
  4. Read Food Nutrition Labels. Get used to reading labels. Look for foods that provide nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and fiber, but limit sodium, added sugars and saturated and trans fats.
  5. Cook At Home. When you cook at home, you have more control over the ingredients in your food and portion sizes. Search for recipes and ingredients together as a family.
