Today continues the “Easy ways to eat more veggies (and fruits)” series. So for the next few Meatless Monday’s we’ll give you tips on how to get move veggies into your busy lifestyle.
Give fewer options at meal times or snack times, and include veggies. If you serve a dinner of three different foods, you’ll end up eating more of each item than if you serve five foods. Unless you’re serving several vegetable dishes, limit the choices for everyday dinners and snacks and your children will surprise you by eating more — because they’re still hungry. Only buy/offer healthy snacks and if they’re hungry, that’s what they’ll eat. (I have definitely found this to be true.)
