Health Tip: Eating Well

(HealthDay News) -- When you're at a popular summer attraction such as an amusement park, nutritional food choices may lacking.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Browse carefully for healthier options, such as grilled chicken, corn on the cob, veggie burgers, salads or grilled vegetables.

  • Enjoy a healthy breakfast at home before you head to the park, and pack a nutritious lunch and snacks.

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day, and bring a refillable bottle. Skip sugary drinks.

  • Kids are sure to beg for every sweet treat they see, but parents shouldn't indulge every request.

  • Focus on the fun, rather than on the food!
