What Kind and How Much: Healthy Foods and Portions for Your Family

The foods we eat tend to change with the seasons based on what’s fresh and available and according to tradition. Summer is usually the time for lighter eating with plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, while cooler weather tends to be a time for heavier menu items. While it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet 365 days a year, you can keep the whole family eating right every season by focusing on a balanced diet, controlling portion sizes, and minimizing sodium and carbohydrate intake. What’s more, you can do it while providing everyone with a variety of foods they enjoy and always look forward to eating.
