Nutrition Notes: 5 Shortcuts to Better Family Nutrition (You Are What You Eat!)

March was National Nutrition Month, and for many parents, a reminder that they need to step up their healthy eating game. The biggest challenge is usually lack of time, but fast and healthy are a feasible combination. Here are the five quick tips I give parents to boost their family’s nutrition without adding work to their daunting daily routines:

  • Shop online. Multitask, save a trip and check inventory in real time, so you don’t buy extra or leave anything out.
  • Chop and store. Fruit and veggies are easy to hand out when they’re washed and ready.
  • Snack smart. Busy families sometimes need snacks to survive, so anticipate hunger emergencies and have things like nutsapplesauce or dried fruit on hand.

Parents tend to attribute poor nutrition to a lack of time, but bad habits are also to blame. Simple daily tweaks will make eating healthier easier, so jumpstart your healthy strategies today!
