Healthy decisions start at home. Planning ahead can improve your health while saving you time and money. Get children involved in planning and cooking too and you’ll be surprised by how easy making healthy changes can be.
Eating nutritious meals in right-size portions will help you and your family be healthier and will give you the energy you need to get through the day. Preparing healthy meals doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive—it just takes planning.
Sit down as a family and plan your healthy meals for the week, and then have everyone make suggestions for the shopping list. Kids (and adults too!) are more willing to try new foods when they help pick them.
Once you’ve planned your shopping list, be sure to stick to it! Shopping from a list instead of waiting to make choices at the grocery store saves you both time and money.
