The healthy choice can be the easy choice
(NC) - Healthy eating not only provides all the nutrients that growing kids need, but also lays the foundation for future health. "Making healthy foods accessible at home is an easy way to teach kids how to make healthy food choices," says Lisa Weinberg, registered dietitian/ nutritionist, with a special interest in pediatric nutrition. "Start by introducing more wholesome staple products, for example switching from white bread to a more nutritious loaf like Wonder+. It has the identical taste and texture as the white bread kids love, plus all the healthy benefits of whole wheat like fibre and eleven essential nutrients."
