Health Tip: Make Time for Healthy Meals
They can still be quick and easy
(HealthDay News) -- Dinnertime is often rushed, and it may seem that there's little time to prepare a healthy meal for the family.
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to prepare healthy meals, despite a hectic schedule:
- Try to plan and cook upcoming meals when you've got the time, such as on weekends.
- Prepare morning breakfast the night before.
- Don't worry about making a fancy dinner; opt instead to spend time together and enjoy something healthy. Try a simple sandwich, soup or salad.
- Plan for quick meals on the go, but avoid fast food.
