Healthy Eating and Living

Mr. Harvey’s Tips on Healthy Eating and Living

Eat a Variety of Foods, Especially Fruits and Vegetables          

You may have a favorite food, but the best choice is to eat a variety. If you eat different foods, you’re more likely to get the nutrients your body needs. Taste new foods and old ones you haven’t tried for a while. Some foods, such as green veggies, are more pleasing the older you get. Shoot for at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day — two fruits and three vegetables.

Here’s one combination that might work for you: 

  • at breakfast: ½ cup (about 4 large) strawberries on your cereal
  • with lunch: 6 baby carrots
  • for a snack: an apple
  • with dinner: ½ cup broccoli (about 2 big spears) and 1 cup of salad

Don’t Forget to Exercise Every Day for 1 hour             

Try hopping on your bike, strapping on your skates, or grabbing your skateboard. Don’t forget your helmet and pads! Or try jumping rope and counting how many times you can jump before you miss. Jumping rope is a great way to get aerobic exercise.  If you play tennis, try hitting a tennis ball against a brick wall. If basketball’s your thing, try shooting hoops and seeing how many you can sink. Or if you’re into soccer, grab a ball, and see how long you can keep it in the air using your feet, knees, and head. When you play with your friends again, they’ll be amazed at what you can do!
