Healthy Eating

Helpful Tips
  • Begin the day with a healthy breakfast. A healthy breakfast fuels the body and provides energy for the day.
  • Let children help plan and prepare one (1) meal each week. This allows them to feel involved and responsible for their own health.
  • Eat more vegetables and fresh fruits. Aim for a total of one (1) fruit and two (2) cups of vegetables each day. Fruits and vegetables help to build the immune system.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Water should always be the first option.
  • Serve food in small portions.
  • Ensure children take time eat and chew slowly. It takes 20 minutes for the brain to tell the body that you are full.
  • Eat together as a family as often as possible.
