Health Tip of the Day

Getting Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies

  • Try different vegetables in different ways, like standing broccoli florets in mashed potatoes and calling them "trees in the snow."

  • Steam vegetables lightly so they taste better.

  • Eat vegetables yourself as a good example to your kids.

  • Go to a farm where you can pick your own vegetables, or plant a garden.

  • Cut carrots, celery or green peppers into dipping sticks and serve with a low-fat dip.

  • Use red bell peppers, bright carrot strips and different types of lettuce to brighten up the meal. Bake shoestring "fries" out of sweet potatoes.

  • Don't give up: They might eat those green beans next time.

Healthy Living

There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
