Three Tricks to Make Eating Healthy Less of A Hassle

Making healthy food choices is important both for individuals and families. Sometimes the task can seem daunting, especially when there are so many food options available. But it doesn’t have to be. With the help of the internet, it can be just as easy to read articles such as a revolution in health, which can hopefully get you on the right track to eating a lot more healthier. No one said it would be easy, but it is not impossible.
Learning to make good eating choices is easier when you do a few simple things to help you and your family become wiser regarding nutrition.

Get Informed

Getting and staying informed about healthy eating practices and issues is one important strategy. In some ways, that’s easier than ever since there’s a wealth of information available. The trick is not becoming overwhelmed by the amount of information. You might want to find a few trusted sources and read them regularly. You could try online blogs or magazines like Whole Foods Magazine or read health and wellness magazines such as Better Nutrition that you can pick up at the grocery or health food store. You can also sign up for email alerts from various health and wellness groups or like their Facebook pages. All of these are ways you can stay updated on healthy eating tips, seasonal foods and recipes, issues regarding GMOs and organics and other health trends and products such as homeopathy or natural cosmetics.

Give Your Kids Healthy Habits Early

This may sound like an obvious bit of advice, but sometimes it’s hard to follow through on even when we have good intentions. One of the best ways we can help our children to have healthy eating habits from an early age is to model them ourselves. If kids see their parents eating a variety of whole, natural foods, they will be more open to eating them too. While many very little children do go through picky-eating phases, later childhood can be a time when there is more openness to trying new foods. Have children try a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and get them used to helping you make good food choices at the store and in the kitchen.

Make Small Changes to Help You Stick to Your Goals

Sometimes there is a temptation to make numerous diet changes all at once. That can be stressful on yourself and your family, and it’s not necessarily the best way to accomplish long-term changes. Start by purchasing a frozen yogurt maker for a fun, tasty way to replace deserts. If you are worried about not being able to find healthy recipes and ingredients then one small change you could make is using a service like Sun Basket, which delivers ingredients for healthy meals right to your front door. Visit this Sun Basket review (https://myfoodsubscriptions.com/meal-kits/sun-basket-review-promo/) for more information! Other small changes you can make is are things as easy as drinking more water, adding a good multi-vitamin, cutting a certain amount of sugar per month, or trying a new fruit and vegetable each week can all be important steps to overall healthier living.

    1. Yeah that’s hard. In my situation, my mother in law gives my kids candy all the time and I want to say something about it, but don’t want to cause friction either. I usually throw the rest out when she leaves. 🙂

  1. These are great tips! My husband is an MD, and he always encourages his parents of picky kids to introduce the same healthy food seven straight days. Start small, just one bite on the plate. Add just a little more with each day. By the end of seven, most kids will accept the new food.

    1. Its true! And one of the things I do, if you don’t eat, that’s your choice. I’m not making you anything else. At 6 and 3 my kids eat pretty good. My three year old loves carrots and “trees”, but hates mashed potatoes, LOL. Its a weird food aversion since its seems like its a comfort food for most, but I’m ok with it because potatoes don’t have much nutrional value to it. 😉

  2. 100% agree! What great tips, simply but useful and easy to implement. I think being educated and informed is definitely the most beneficial. I’ve slowly been doing this and am trying to cut out sugar after reading ‘I Quit Sugar’. 🙂

  3. Thank you for posting this. I can eat healthily but then I all of a sudden need a good old binge! I need to keep healthy and I think, like you have said, smaller changes will help me get there!

  4. I agree with you on starting kids early with healthy eating that way they don’t have anything else to compare it to. I’ll definitely be doing this with my little one.

  5. This is very informative, thank you. I have made some notes regarding your post and I am going to share with my family and friends.
