that are es­tab­lished now mat­ter both to to­day and their fu­ture. I would like to in­cor­po­rate at least one more serv­ing of veg­eta­bles daily. Do you have any sug­ges­tions for howI can do this with­out re­ally notic­ing it! Thanks, Char­lotte.

Hi Char­lotte – You can al­ways eat more veg­eta­bles. In the rush of life, a few days can slip by where we might not have con­sumed enough veg­eta­bles.

Es­tab­lish some reg­u­lar habits such as drink­ing a veg­etable juice or green smoothie, adding a salad to your lunch, or order­ing a side of veg­eta­bles when din­ing out. Or when you’re at home pre­pare veg­eta­bles and a salad, grate veg­eta­bles into your main dishes or take raw veg­etable sticks with a home­made pesto or hum­mus as a snack. With habits like this, you’re able to amp up your veg­etable in­take while still jug­gling the many aspects of life.

Pro­vid­ing healthy snack al­ter­na­tives for your teen could be enough to turn them away from junk food.
