Healthful Eating

Contributor: Sharon Weston, RD, OWL Dietitian

Some things to consider as you set some nutritional goals for your family:

  • How, when, why and where we eat are just as important as what we eat.  Making sure to enjoy the sight, sounds, memories and interactions associated with eating are essential to developing an overall healthy eating plan.
  • Develop a “mindful” eating pattern that includes nutritious and flavorful foods, while also taking the time to enjoy everything that a healthful and tasty meal brings with it.  That’s the best way to savor the flavor of eating right!
  • It is possible to enjoy the taste and flavor of food while still maintaining a healthy diet.  Take time to enjoy food traditions and find creative, healthful and nutritious ways to add flavor to food. 
  • Your OWL dietitian can provide sound, easy-to-follow personalized nutrition advice to meet your lifestyle, preferences and health-related needs
