Last week, 9/9/09, we had guest speaker Sarah Mabra come and speak about health and fitness. She stressed how important it is for us to feed our bodies healthy and nutritious foods and teach our children the same habits. Examples were given of QUALITY calories vs. EMPTY calories. Some quality calories would be whole grains, fruits, vegetables, chicken, lean red meat, and nuts. Empty calories would be french fries, pop, candy, bagels, and chips. Sarah also gave us tips on how to get those "picky" eaters to eat healthier, PUREE. When you puree food like fruit and vegetables, they hold their nutritional value but obviously not their shape. Pureed food can be easily added to favorites such as mac&cheese, muffins, meatballs, and beverages.
Thanks Sarah for all the helpful information. You can visit Sarah at Mabra Chiropractic for more of this info and special NEW information on allergies!
