The summer is well under way—kids are out of school, the days are long, and hot. Just because we are having summer fun, doesn’t mean we can’t make healthy eating choices. We’ve prepared some tips to get the whole family to eat healthy this summer!

 TIP #1: Ditch the ice cream and opt for: popsicles, paletas, fresh fruit for dessert!

We love this yummy watermelon, mint and lemon paleta recipe from Frances at Discovering the World Through My Son's Eyes.

 

TIP #2: Instead of sugary drinks, how about a refreshing fruit infused water instead? Yummy! 

  TIP #3: Add grilled veggies and fruits to your BBQ!

Tomatoes are all the rage in the summer, it is when they are the best because they are in season. We love this tomato Caprese salad.
