Great Tips for Moms!


Tip 1:

In a restaurant, start your meal with a salad packed with veggies, to help control hunger and feel satisfied sooner.

Tip 2:

Plan ahead to defrost foods. Never defrost food on the kitchen counter at room temperature.

Thaw food by placing it in the refrigerator, submerging air-tight packaged food in cold tap water, or defrosting on a plate in the microwave.

Tip 3:

Reward your child with attention and kind words, not food. Show your love with hugs and kisses; console with hugs and talks.

Tip 4:

Make hand washing FUN! Sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” or the “Alphabet Song” two times through while washing hands to make sure your child is washing long enough.

Tip 5:

Teach older children to read the ingredient list on cereals or snack food packages and choose those with whole grains at the top of the list.

Tip 6:
Foods with less than 140 mg sodium per serving can be labeled as low sodium foods.

Tip 7:

Beauty Foods: Citrus fruits hold your skin cells together by forming collagen. This is why it’s important to eat citrus fruits regularly.

Tip 8:

Check the Nutrition Facts label for the saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, and sodium content of packaged foods.

Tip 9:

Choose nuts as a snack, on salads, or in main dishes. Use nuts to replace meat or poultry, not in addition to these items.
