The holidays are full of parties and events that can make it hard to stick to a healthful eating pattern. Here are some tips to help make that easier!
- • Plan Ahead: Eat an apple, pear or other light snack before parties and festivities to curb hunger.
- • When You Contribute Food, Be Thoughtful: Bring a nutritious holiday dish to the party. Try a plate of vegetables with a flavorful dip or a beautifully-arranged tray of fresh and dried fruits like the one pictured here.
- • Keep the Focus on the Holiday Itself: Celebrate what the holidays are really about – spending time with family and friends. Find creative activities, play a game, or get active together instead of focusing solely on food.
