Video content with NWAHEC About Eating Healthy While Staying Home - Watch the Video Here

5 tips shared in the video:

1.     Lower the bar on healthy eating expectations. We all have heightened stress and feel like things are out of control. Comfort foods can be helpful in creating a sense of normalcy.
2.     Be mindful about hunger cues and emotions. What you eat is less important.
3.     Keep to a routine. Including meal and snack times.
4.     Have a fruit bowl out in your kitchen.
5.     There’s nothing wrong with coffee!
