How to Make Healthier Food Choices - 3rd April 2016

Healthy Holiday Eating

  • Enjoy a healthy breakfast to help prevent overeating later on.
  • Eat what’s best for you first. Fill at least half your plate with fresh fruit and veggies. You’ll have less room for the rest.
  • Bring a healthy dish to a party.
  • Fruit by itself makes an excellent dessert. Try placing a bowl of clementines or apples on the holiday table.

  • Keep a food journal to help track what you’re eating.
