Healthy eating tips for busy families

 

With the endless juggle of school drop-offs and pick-ups, work, after school sports, extra-curricular activities, committee meetings and play dates, today’s families are busier than ever.

 

Leading by example and ensuring your family eats a balanced diet is key to feeling healthy, happy and strong. Here are some quick tips to help your whole family stay on track with your healthy eating routine.

 

1. Keep it simple. Family meals don’t have to be elaborate to be healthy and effective! Come up with easy ways to balance your meal with simple vegetable side dishes or fruit and yogurt for dessert.

2. Have healthy food on hand and eat from your freezer or pantry on busy weeknights.

3. Prepare double batches of food when you’re less rushed so you can cook once, eat twice.

4. Family meal does not have to be dinner, breakfast or lunch may work better in some households.

5. Turn off technology and make conversation the focus of family meals. Catch up on the day with everyone, share fun stories and jokes, talk about news events etc.

6. Share the work. Enlist help from the family, from planning the shopping list to making lunches, setting the table, pouring the milk and clean up. Eating as a family is truly comforting, from toddlers, teens to adults. Family meals can become a memorable tradition for the whole family.

7. Dump the guilt. Family meals may not happen every day, and that’s ok. Make the most of your family meals when they occur.
