Nutrition Tip for Fall

Small Changes Make a Big Difference! According to Dr. Thomas Robinson, director of the Center for Healthy Weight at Stanford University, family goals aimed at reducing childhood obesity must be specific, simple and measurable. He recommends cutting back on high-calorie or high-fat foods rather than focusing on counting calories, fat or carbohydrates, and providing nonmaterial rewards for behavioral changes. Other simple changes include:

• Start the day with a healthy breakfast.
• Eat low-fat dairy products (yogurt, milk, cheese) that are rich in calcium.
• Limit fast food and eating out to once/week.
• Add fiber rich fruits, veggies & whole grains.
