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. But don't just think about nutrition in March. 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!
