Think About It
Did you know that each meal should be 50 percent fruits and vegetables, 25 percent protein and 25 percent whole grains? Eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day will improve your health.
You can help your family create healthy menus by utilizing the nutrition information and recipes on this website as well by following the 5-a-day rule found on the USDA "My Plate" guidelines website www.ChooseMyPlate.gov.
Remember parents, your role is to offer healthy foods and make them available in the home. Be a role model, serve the same foods to the whole family, and get your kids involved with the preparation. Kids are more likely to try new foods when they are part of the process.
Creating a healthy tomorrow for our children starts at home. Make the commitment to encourage your family to eat fresh, healthy food. Everyone will benefit from it.
