User Profile
How can you integrate a girls guide to eating healthy into your girl’s daily living?

The answer is easier than you might think. Once you change your family’s eating habits, you are well on your way to instilling a lifetime of healthy eating for your daughter and yourself.

These tips will help you get started:
  • Regular meals - It is very important to eat regular meals during the day…every day. Shoot for three well-balanced meals and two healthy snacks.

  • Cooking Options - Fast food manufacturers have turned the world on to fried foods. However, there are much healthier alternatives, such as grilled, baked, and even stir-fried.

  • Portion Control - A very important aspect that should be a part of every girls guide to healthy eating, regardless of her weight, is portion control. Teach your girl to stop eating when she is full. It’s okay to leave extra food on that plate!

  • Balanced Diet - A girl’s development depends upon a well-balanced diet. This means lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, proteins, dairy foods, and healthy fats.

  • Seasoning Choices - Skip the bad fat grams and the high sodium content, and instead choose herbs to spice up your dinner.

  • Sugar Alternatives - Does your little sweetie have a sweet tooth? Help her combat it by offering better alternatives, such as sugar-free drinks and snacks and flavored water.

  • Clearer skin
  • Shinier hair
  • More energy
  • Achieving maximum height
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
