Healthy Eating

Healthy Foods


  • Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day. Be sure you serve fruit or vegetables at every meal.
  • Make it easy for children to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers and cheese, raisins, cereal bars
  • Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, and nuts.
  • Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fibre
  • Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as boiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat products.
  • Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips, crisps, sweets, chocolates, cakes, pies etc. Don't completely ban favourite snacks from your home. Instead, make them "once-in-a-while" foods, so children don't feel deprived.
  • Limit sugary drinks, such as fizzy drinks, energy drinks, and high sugar content fruit juices. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.
