Share Your Meal


The average fast food meal can pack as many as 1,000 calories, making it the equivalent to two meals in one. Split your meal with your kids, or, if you are alone, divide it and only eat half. If you feel deprived, try eating slower. This gives your brain time to process that it is no longer hungry, and you'll be satisfied by the time you finish your half of the meal.

Don't forget to hydrate! Forego sugary juices and sodas and pack a bottle of water in your child's lunch. If your child likes a little more flavor, spice it up with lemon, lime, cucumbers, or fresh fruit.
