Did you know establishing healthy habits can actually give you more time with your family? It may seem daunting and less important than the other items on your to-do list, but it’s a necessary habit to start. Establishing and maintaining healthy habits is essential for every member of the family since the prevalence of obesity isn’t limited to adults. In fact, more than one third of American children and adolescents were overweight or obese in 2012and over half of American pets have the same problem.
While it’s a better habit to eat without multi-tasking, sometimes having “go-to” items that are easy to eat during your commute can make all the difference in a day. So what can you do to make some quick meals and snacks that are pretty portable?
Here are some recommendations that are kid and adult friendly.
Afternoon pick-up and evening traffic can aggravate even the most patient person, especially when you start the morning not knowing what the afternoon mood will be like.
A quick snack can mean getting home in time to get a meal on the table. Afterwards, taking a family walk with the dog can make sure you everyone gets their steps in for the day.
