Research shows that if you eat together as a family, it helps children eat less junk food and more fruits and vegetables.
Replace white stuff with the brown stuff…brown rice, whole wheat bread (without corn syrup as an ingredient), whole wheat pasta.
Read the ingredient labels on food packages and choose foods with “whole” in the grain or flour name of the first 3 ingredients.
Add a green vegetable to dinner every night.
Snack right by eating an apple, banana, or strawberries at snack time
|Celebrating Success: Healthier Beverages in Schools|
Recently, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation announced the final results of an independent third-party study to analyze the affect of the Alliance School Beverage Guidelines. The results are promising.
This announcement is just one step forward to building a healthier generation. There is no single cause to the childhood obesity epidemic and no single solution. That is why the Alliance works across the board – with schools, healthcare, industry, families, communities, and kids, themselves - to make physical activity and healthy eating easy for kids to access.
