Back to school means back to routines

(NC)-Back-to-school is a time to shop for new clothes and school supplies. It is also a time to get back into healthy routines and to think about eating nutritious snacks, lunches and dinners.

However, there is an increase in obesity in our children. The Heart and Stroke Foundation is working to change this trend. Healthy eating and increased physical activity are the best solutions. One important way the Foundation is helping Canadians to eat well is through the Heart and Stroke Health Check food information program.

Tami O'Dette, mother of two, wants to ensure she is setting the right example for her children about healthy eating. "I am doing my best to incorporate Canada's Food Guide into our meals and snacks to give my children the right energy for school. Grocery shopping can be overwhelming at times, but choosing foods with the Heart and Stroke Health Check symbol is a quick way for me to identify foods that are healthy.

The Health Check program was designed for this exact purpose.

"Health Check was developed by an expert panel of nutrition experts who established its nutrient criteria," says Dr. Marco Di Buono, Director, Research, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. "This not-for-profit food information initiative evaluates products on the basis of total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, fibre, sodium, calcium, sugar, vitamins and minerals. The Health Check symbol ensures that the food or menu item has been evaluated by the Heart and Stroke Foundation's registered dietitians and is a healthy choice."

Meal planning is one of the most important steps to eating well. Meal preparation is much less stressful when dinner is planned in advance. Plan your meals for the week to save you time and to help meet your family's nutritional needs. The Heart and Stroke Foundation website heartandstroke.ca is a great resource for families looking for healthy recipes for dinner and kid-friendly lunches. It is also updated regularly with tips on how to shop for food, make healthier choices and keep active.
