The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Choose My Plate are promoting a campaign to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Here are some tips from Choose My Plate to help you get heatlhier:

  • Plan your meals
    Avoid stress at mealtime by planning a weekly menu and posting it in a location for everyone to see, like a chalkboard in the kitchen.

  • Prep ahead
    Have ingredients for the week ready. After you shop, cut vegetables and measure ingredients in advance for easier meals.

  • Make mealtime a priority
    Make time for family meals when planning your household’s schedule each week. Try to cook, eat up, and clean up together!
  • Think beyond dinner
    If evenings are too hectic at your house, consider other meals for family time such as a weekend brunch or even afternoon snack time.
Keep meals fun and focused
    Keep the family table a  media- and stress-free zone. Use your valuable family time to “unplug,” interact, and focus on each other.
