Make Healthy Eating a Priority in your Home!

Take time to make a weekly meal plan

Making a weekly meal and snack plan is an important first step for healthy eating. Having a plan can prevent extra trips to the store and can reduce the amount of food you eat from restaurants. Involve the whole family in planning meals and snacks. For helpful information on meal planning, visit My Meal Planner at: www.eatrightontario.ca

Healthy eating starts with what you put into your cart

Plan meals and snacks and make a list of the food you need to buy before you go shopping. For ideas on healthy meals and snacks, visit Eat Right Ontario at www.eatrightontario.ca

Make time to eat together

Have regular meal times together as often as possible. At each meal serve a food choice from each of the four food groups from Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide.

 

Remember, it’s your role to provide the food to eat and to decide when and where to eat it. It’s your child’s role to decide if they are going to eat, and how much.

Offer healthy snacks

Eating small amounts of healthy food between meals helps keep your child energized throughout the day.

Did you know that children who eat supper with their families three or more times per week have eating habits that support good health?

Fuel for Active Kids!

Amy Skeoch MHSc, RD

 

If your kids are anything like mine, the minute they come through the door they are looking for SNACKS! And more often than not, they’re only home for a short time before they’re off to extracurricular sports activities. No matter what the sport it’s important that their snack provides the right amount of fuel to get them through their game or practise, until their next meal.

 

What to eat?

Snacks don’t have to be Pinterest-worthy. Think simple, easily digestible items that provide carbohydrates for energy (whole grain breads, bagels, vegetables, fruit) paired with something that provides some protein that will keep them feeling full (veggies and hummus, bagel with almond or peanut butter, cheese and crackers, apples and yogurt dip). If you have time to make some items, there are great recipes online to make homemade energy balls and granola bars that can be tailored to your children’s preferences and eaten throughout the week.

 

How much to eat?

Depending on their age, most school-aged kids can eat ½ to a full food guide serving. Example, ¼ to ½ bagel, tortilla and pita. 1-2tbsp of nut butter, or hummus, ½-1 piece of fruit, and 1/4 -1/2 cup vegetables. Let your child’s hunger be your guide until they feel satisfied rather than full.

 

When to eat?

Snacks should be eaten 1-2 hours before the activity if possible to reduce stomach upset.

 

What about fluids?

Keeping hydrated before, during and after activity is important. Unless your child is participating in elite sports that involve vigorous consistent activity for over an hour, water is all they need to stay hydrated. There’s no need for sports drinks and any type of “Energy” drink is not recommended.

 

Time Tip: Take an extra 10 minutes after shopping and cut up fruits and vegetables for the week – even better, if your kids are old enough have them do this task and they’ll know exactly where to head for a snack when they get home.
