Healthy Eating For The Whole Family

Healthy Eating For The Whole Family

How can you manage your slimming diet, your athletic husband’s body building diet, your toddler’s fussy eating and your father’s high blood pressure all at the same time? The answer: a varied diet that can meet everybody’s needs.

Healthy eating habits for the whole family

The whole family can discover the fun of eating a varied diet. Each person can choose from the food available according to their taste preferences, their energy needs and nutritional requirements. All you need is some good recipes, a well-stocked pantry and some menu planning.

What if someone in the family is trying to lose weight?

Nothing needs to be ruled out altogether when you are following a weight-loss diet. The only thing that changes is the quantity of food eaten and awareness of what your body needs. It is easy for one member of the family to lose weight if the whole family has a varied diet, by taking foods from the core food groups.

Attractively presented, well-cooked, varied dishes, whether based on whole grain cereals, pulses, meat, fish, vegetables, are sure to tempt everybody. And what’s more, any members of the family who are on a special diet won’t feel left out because you’re all eating the same thing! They will feel you are supporting them and that is a great help.

Draw up a menu plan with members of your family who are trying to lose weight. There’s no need to go on a restrictive diet. Simply sticking to the recommended serves of food from the food guide and including some regular physical activity is often enough to reach a healthy weight.

Keeping well

There is a direct link between the way you eat and your health: to live well, you firstly need to eat well.

Making changes in your diet can help improve your health. Eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes as well as a variety of foods from the core food groups may help maintain a good immune system.
