10 Tips for Healthy Eating

1. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.

Check your portion sizes. Is half your meal made up of fruits and veggies?

2. Eat whole grains.

Try whole-wheat bread, cereal, and pasta. These foods help with digestion.

3. Choose water instead of soda.

Water keeps you hydrated. It is also better for your teeth than sugary drinks.

4. Eat lean meat for strength.

Protein makes you strong. Chicken, fish, turkey, beans, and lean beef and pork are packed with protein.

5. Snack smartly.

Don’t fill up on snacks before meals, and avoid sugary and overly salty snacks.

6. Cut back on sweets.

Here are some tasty alternatives: yogurt, raisins, string cheese, fruit, or vegetable sticks.

7. Don’t forget dairy.

Pair your meal with a cup of low fat milk or soy milk.
