Eating Right on the Go

Victoria Shanoski's insight:

http://elibrary.bigchalk.com/elibweb/elib/do/document?set=search&dictionaryClick=&secondaryNav=advance&groupid=1&requestid=lib_standard&resultid=2&edition=&ts=DDD3166278E616D116D812DF9C37DE90_1389748846737&start=1&publicationId=&urn=urn%3Abigchalk%3AUS%3BBCLib%3Bdocument%3B190284339

 

P= Problems with unhealthy eating behaviors

B= Benefits of a healthy diet

S= Suggestions for healthy eating

 

S= " Always, always eat breakfast," Cindy SIlver said. "It's kind of like putting gasoline in the car. You need fuel to run your body, to get the brain functioning and thinking clearly. You need breakfast to kick-start your day." said Amy Fanjoy.

S= Breakfast should be a mixture of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fat

S= For lunch a sandwich is fine, but try to use a whole-grain bread, with a lean meat and cheese. Add some lettuces or even better like spinach. 

S= vegetables are good for you

S= kids should ditch soda and even juices. Juices have a lot of sweet calories and are not as nutritious as whole fruit

S= Skim or 1% milk is preferred because whole milk is higher in saturated fat

S= try to stay away from flavored waters, they add sugar and calories. Kids can make their own flavored water with a little bit of fresh fruit or vanilla extract

P, S= Teens should avoid energy drinks or beverages with caffeine because they make the heart race, may affect sleeping and consequently brain function

S, B= Gatorade is a good beverage for when its warm outside because it replaces the body's electrolytes that are lost when sweating
