Did you make a new years resolution to be more healthy? Are your healthy habits holding strong or starting to fade? If you need to get back on track check out choosemyplate.gov. You’ll find great tips on eating healthy for an active lifestyle, enjoying your food but eating less, eating better on a budget, and much, much more.
One of my new years resolutions is to be a healthy role model. With two small children at home who are developing their eating habits, it is important for me to make healthy choices and encourage my children to do the same. MyPlate recommends the following tips on being a healthy role model:
- Show by example.
- Go shopping together.
- Get Creative in the Kitchen.
- Offer the same foods to everyone.
- Reward with attention, not food.
- Focus on each other at the table.
- Listen to your child.
- Limit screen time.
- Encourage physical activity.
- Be a good food role model.
