Welcome to National Nutrition Month at eFitFamily! We invite you to join us in taking small steps towards a healthier diet. Many families have limited meal options due to a rushed schedule…from work to picking kids up from school to taking kids to gymnastics, soccer, boys and girls scout, to homework time to chores to bedtime…where’s all the time to cook a healthy well-balanced meal?
We challenge you to find creative ways to make healthy choices for your family…Is your crockpot collecting dust instead of helping cook a vegetable stew while you’re at work and the kids are at school? Is there a health food store around the corner that you’ve been wanting to check out and could find time this weekend to explore? Did someone give you a new recipe that’s been sitting in your junk drawer or on your cookbook shelf that is calling you to test it out?
Create a monthly parent group for other busy parents to get together and share quick and easy healthy recipes. Make dinner time a fun family time and allow your children to help prepare the meal…this not only builds family bonds but also teaches important life skills. Start a healthy meal jar where everyone in the family can write down healthy meal ideas to consider throughout the year…you may be suprised by your children’s ideas!
Have fun finding new and creative ways to enjoy your fruits and vegetables and let us know any impact on your energy level, mood, family dynamics, and children’s behavior!
