Here is some motivation to move you through the week… Healthy Living Tips for Monday and Beyond:
3 Ways to help kids focus on eating mindfully…
- Ask your children how hungry they are before a meal so they begin to develop an awareness of true physical hunger vs. emotional hunger.
- Eat without distraction, which means not in front of the TV or computer, while on the phone or in the car.
- Teach children to put their fork down between bites so they eat more slowly, allowing their bodies to feel full.

“Lots of great information that’s easy to read and use so that daily family meals and snacks are tasty and healthy. I like the pages that can be posted for reference on a fridge or kitchen wall. There is plenty of nutritional information, too. This would be helpful to anyone looking to improve their family’s diet (including mom and dad!). I’ll definitely recommend it to my friends.” –Evelyn Hess

Having a healthy relationship with food is all about balance. I try not to categorize food as bad or good, food is just food. It’s important to understand that you can enjoy your favorite foods even if they are high in calories, fat or added sugars. The key is moderation! Balancing them out with healthier food choices.
Keep these two things in mind:
- If you find that you normally eat your favorite (not so healthy) foods every day, try to eat them less often by cutting back to once a week or once a month.
- Also, try eating smaller amounts of your favorite higher-calorie foods.

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share this handy little infographic I put together for my kids to use to help guide them in packing their own lunches. Having one in 6th and one in 4th this year I felt it was time that they starting making their own lunches. What’s great about this is it saves me time and I’ve found that when they pack their lunch they eat their lunch, hooray! This is also helpful for us parents and non-parents to use!
If you have thought about eating clean you might want to check out this infographic from Franchesca.net. It shows you how you can clean up your diet in 5 weeks!
