Eat More Fruits and Veggies

Sunday, October 2, 2011
Hello!  I am back today with another quick health tip but first I want to know if you drank more water yesterday and today! 

How did it go?  Do you feel better yet?

Today,  I want you to keep on drinking more water but I want you to add fruits and vegetables.  Fresh is the best but if this is new to you, cooked would be an improvement to!


This might be easy for some of you and for others, this might be very difficult.  It is recommended that half your meal is from fruits and veggies. 

We try to add a fruit and veggie with every meal if we can.  For example, this morning we made eggs with onions and fresh salsa with fruit on the side.
We have found if you put it out, the kids will eat it.  They actually like it!  Just try not to buy all the bad foods. (That is a whole other post by itself.)

If your kids don’t like fresh fruit or veggies, try to make it fun looking…
