2. Use “healthy eating day”
Plan the menu for the week as a family and every week contemplate “the day of healthy eating” in which, they consume delicious and low-calorie dishes, such as: salads, chicken, fish or any other type of food that you like to all that can be baked or roasted.
This does not mean that the rest of the days they consume foods with high caloric intake, but “the day of healthy eating” is a good excuse for everyone to eat well and nutritiously.
3. Outdoor sports every week
If your family is big enough, why not go once a week to practice a sport at the park or sports unit? On a soccer field organize a “cascarita” with two teams made up of brothers, cousins, uncles and neighbors. If the family is not so big, that’s okay! They could swim on the beach (if you live on the coast) or in a pool for a period of about 40 minutes per week.
Another good idea is to visit a park or some important avenue in your city by bicycle, pedal for a while exploring and knowing more about those places. Repeat this practice once a week, at least.
4. Healthy snacks daily
It is a fact that in the middle of the afternoon we all get hungry, and it is super easy to fall into the temptation of French fries, cookies or any of those junk foods. Here it is recommended that whenever you have a craving for a snack, you prefer fruits with chili or chamoy; Cucumbers, jicamas, and striped carrots are a great low-calorie option, and nuts could be another healthy alternative.
