Healthy Eating for a Healthy Weight


Fresh, frozen, and canned fruits are all excellent options. Try fruits other than apples and bananas, such as mango, pineapple, and kiwi.

Use frozen, canned, or dried fruit when fresh fruit is out of season. Keep in mind that dried and canned fruits may have additional sugars or syrups.


Add flavor to grilled or cooked vegetables with rosemary or another herb.

Consider purchasing canned vegetables without added salt, butter, or sauces. Try a new veggie each week for diversity.

Calcium-rich foods

Consider, in addition to fat-free and low-fat milk, fat-free and low-fat yogurts without added sugars.

They come in a variety of flavors and are a fantastic substitute for dessert.


If your favorite recipe asks for fried fish or breaded chicken, try baking or grilling as healthier alternatives.

Ask friends and browse the internet and publications for low-calorie recipes; you may be surprised to discover a new favorite food.

Comfort Foods

Even if your favorite foods are rich in calories, fat, or added sweets, you can still enjoy them.
