Healthy Summer Eating
With all of the barbeques, parties and vacations during the summer months, making healthy choices at mealtime can be difficult. Here are some tips to help keep you on track when it comes to food and drinks!
- Keep hydrated by drinking 8 glasses of water a day.
- Take advantage of fresh fruit and vegetables this summer, 2 servings each day is just right for you!
- Eat as much as 5-7 servings from the grain food group! This includes any food that is made from wheat, rice, oats, or another grain product.
- Lean meats like chicken and low-fat beef are healthy for you! You can even go for fish or eggs as another source of protein instead of meat.
- Sugary sweets can be tough to avoid during the summertime, do your best to not eat too much of them!
