Eating Healthy

Life is tough these days. We are all so busy with work, family, and specially children now that they are on vacation. Somehow, even though we want to do our best for ourselves and our kids, cooking and eating together, seems to get left out. Here are a few tips that can be helpful in saving you time and avoiding doctor’s visits.

1. Pack lunches with whole grains, fruits, lean, all natural meats and healthy snacks, such as nuts and dried fruits.
2. Try to keep sealed, non-perishable healthy snacks in your car for when your little one is hungry on the road. Dried fruits, nuts and healthy individually-packaged snacks are a good option.
3. Fill your cooler with healthy lunches, snacks and drinks when you plan a long road trip or when you are traveling to a vacation spot. This can help avoid the need to stop at a fast food restaurants in the middle of nowhere when your children suddenly declare, “We’re STARVING!” With a well-stocked cooler you’ll be prepared.
4. If the meals are safe to be placed in a vacuum-sealed container and put in the freezer, they can often keep for several weeks. If you take the time to make a healthy, homemade meal, why not make a few extra batches? This comes in handy during those particularly busy evenings: You don’t have time to cook but the family still gets a nutritious, home-cooked meal.
5. As difficult as it can sometimes be, try your best to have at least one (preferably two) family sit-down meals a day. This is important for a few reasons. It helps strengthen the family bond–nothing brings people together like food! It also helps show children the importance of taking time to be with people they love. Family meals can also be good for picky eaters. The more they see their parents and siblings enjoying different foods together, the more likely they are to eventually try new things.
