Tip of the Week: Put fruit and veggies first!

Did you know you’ll eat the food you see? If there is a dish of candy out on the table, you’ll probably get one or two as you walk by. Every time. All day. That could add up to a lot of candy!

But did you know that the same thing thing will happen if you have a dish of fruit on the table?!

Try leaving a dish of oranges, apples, bananas, or pears (or even cherry tomatoes) out instead, and you’re more likely to eat them instead of candy or snacks!

Another way to sneak more fruits and veggies into your day is to put them first!

When you set out a buffet for dinner, or get your plate ready to take to the table, start by adding the fruits and vegetables before you add the other parts of the dish, and you are more likely to eat more veggies at each meal. Easy and delicious.
