A Healthy Body Starts with a Healthy Diet

Written by Aimee Vida

    It is certainly stressful to be a young child with school work, State exams and extra-curricular activities.  Parents are also faced with a demanding schedule that can leave you wiped out by the end of the day.  With this busy schedule it is easy to rely on “junk” snacks for a quick boost of energy.  The truth of the matter is, sugary snacks will calm hunger and provide a little energy, but in the long run, these snacks tend to provide only brief periods of energy followed by fatigue and very little or no nutritional value.  When looking for that 2 p.m. pick-me-up, why not reach for a healthy granola bar, low-fat yogurt, box of raisins, or crispy baby carrots with peanut butter dip.  These snacks will not only calm your hunger and give a boost of energy, but it will deliver you with added nutrients that contribute to a healthy diet.  A second source of empty calories during the school day is from soda and other sugar laced beverages.  The next time you head over to the vending machine; consider getting bottled water or fruit juice rather than a can of soda that may contain up to 12 spoons of sugar.  Small adjustments can make a big difference!
