5 Healthy Holiday Habits

  1. Include fruits and vegetables in holiday meals
    Seasonal favorites: apples, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, kale, sweet potatoes, winter squash
  1. Don’t skip meals
    Eat breakfast, eat evenly-spaced meals, eat nutrient rich snacks, and don’t skip meals to “save room”
  1. Stick to your normal routines
    As much as possible, keep your normal routines – eat your usual meals and snacks at your usual times so you wont overindulge later
  1. Practice portion control
    Practice portion control, using MyPlate as a model – make ½ of your plate fruits & vegetables, ¼ protein, and ¼ whole grains
  1. Exercise
    Step it up a notch: add 10 minutes a day to what you normally do, start a new holiday exercise program with co-workers, sign the family up for a 5k, or walk & use the stairs as you shop!
