Healthy eating on the go: Fitness tips for kids and teens

The hustle and bustle of our daily lives can make healthy eating challenging, but a little preparation goes a long way. Here are a few tips that can help to keep you on track when you’re on the go!

Plan ahead.

Leave home equipped with healthy treats to avoid outside temptation. Your waistline and your WALLET will thank you – the extra expense of snacking adds up after awhile!

Limit your cravings.

Pack foods that will limit your cravings: focus on protein, whole grains, and fiber rich foods that will keep you feeling satisfied. A great go to traveling spread: chicken, broccoli, half of a protein bar, an apple, and pure pressed green juice.Green smoothie

Stay hydrated.

You’re going to hear this next one for the rest of your days: Stay hydrated! Thirst is often mistaken for hunger. Stay a step ahead of your thirst and grab a drink at any opportunity.

Play mind tricks.

Pack your treats in stylish and fun storage containers that are more appealing to the eyes. Being consistent has a lot to do with your will and determination, but this battle is also about reprogramming your thoughts and the way your mind works. A little bit of preparedness can make a huge difference when eating healthy on the go!
