Fruits and Vegetables:
• Bulk up on fruits and vegetables at their seasons peak.
• Look for fruits and vegetables that are brightly colored, for example yellow and orange because they are rich in beta-carotene, while green vegetables are rich in vitamin C and calcium.
• Buy frozen vegetables without sauce.
Milk and milk products:
• Gradually switch from whole milk to reduced-fat, from reduced-fat to low fat, and from low fat to fat-free milk. Your kids won't even notice it! Low-fat and fat-free milk have all the great nutrition of whole milk but with less fat and fewer calories.
• Choose fat-free yogurt or sorbet instead of ice cream.
• Use fat-free and low-fat cheeses (such as part-skim ricotta or low-fat mozzarella) instead of regular cheeses.
Meat and Meat alternates:
• Choose lean meats or trim the fat from pork and beef; remove the skin from poultry.
• Eat at least 2 serving of fish per week.
• Use legumes often. Legumes are rich in protein and vitamins!
• Use 2 egg whites in place of each whole egg.
Fat and Oils:
• Use butter or margarine sparingly; select soft margarines instead of hard margarines.
• Limit the use of lard and meat fat.
