Simple Changes at Home Encourage Nutritionwith Elaine Hastings, RD
Q: What are some simple changes to make at home, which encourage better nutrition and health?
(in terms of shopping, habits, or schedules)
First and foremost: remember that kids mimic adults!
Your children will do what you do, eat what you eat!
With that in mind, here are some simple changes to make, which give the whole family a healthful advantage:
Don’t buy sodas
Don’t buy sugary breakfast cereals
Eat breakfast every day
Keep fruits and veggies on hand
Don’t let kids eat standing up: be mindful of each meal
Plant a garden at home with your kids
Grow or keep herbs in pots in the kitchen
Take walks after dinner or early in the day – a great time to talk (and listen)
Declare one day a week as treat day, when candy or dessert is allowed……..?
