The Council has Eight Healthy Eating Goals, and this week we will look at the remaining 4 healthy eating habits you can adopt in 2017. So many people think healthy eating means giving up food. But for many people, healthy eating means adding food to your day – adding more fruits and vegetables, adding whole grains.
I was in a grocery store and the mother of a toddler was buying a carton of Juice Drink boxes. She probably thought this was a healthy choice but she was really buying mostly sugar water for her young child. Had she bought real juice she would have been offering her toddler something with nutritional value rather than a drink of empty calories. Making some small changes in the foods we choose to eat and buy each day can have a major impact on our health. Simply buying real juice instead of juice drinks made of sugar water would be a big improvement in one’s diet.
