Here’s how it works:
Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.
At least 3 cups of vegetables each day (cup of raw or cooked vegetables and 2 cups of leafy greens each count as one cup)
Eat whole grain foods (e.g., oatmeal, whole wheat bread, and brown rice)
Eat less sodium
Eat less fat, especially saturated fat and trans-fat that are typically found in processed meat, red meats, and baked goods.
