Are your children eating balanced meals? It might be easier than you think. Keep reading this post by Stretch-n-Grow in Winston-Salem for four essential tips on eating better.

Make a Plan

It seems like everything starts with a plan nowadays, but eating better does require a bit of planning. The good news is that by planning once a week, you'll be able to map out a week or two in advance and ensure you and your family will eat well. Remember that a colorful plate is a balanced plate, and those colors can be made up of fruits, vegetables, protein, and grains.

Stock up on Healthy Snacks

Healthy snacks are another way to sneak more fruits and vegetables into your diet. The key is not to cut out all other snacks you enjoy but to add more variety to the mix. Some ideas for healthy snacks are:
  • Fruit with peanut butter.
  • Vegetable chips
  • Yogurt with granola.
  • Baby carrots with some dip.

Eat Foods You Enjoy

Eating should be a joyful experience, and cutting out everything you enjoy to pursue a perfectly balanced diet can backfire, making you go back to habits you're trying to put behind. That's why instead of constraining your diet to only healthy foods, it's best to add to it and keep some of your favorites in the mix.

Besides balanced meals, physical activity is essential for children's growth, focus, and energy. Call Stretch-n-Grow in Winston-Salem, NC, for information on their excellent fitness programs for children. Also, don't forget to ask about their demo class.
