Healthy Eating Tips While On Vacation...

Healthy traveling snacks for kids while you are on the road.

Any kind of prewashed fresh fruit

Popcorn: Top air-popped popcorn sprinkled with butter buds or with light Parmesan cheese

Pretzel sticks

Nuts: roasted or raw almonds, walnuts or peanuts (not oiled or candied)

Low-fat string cheese or chunked low-fat cheese

Cereal bars (first ingredient should be whole grain; each should have less than 10 grams of sugar per bar and maximum 3-4 grams of fat).

Dried or dehydrated fruit: raisins, apricots, pears, apples

Frozen grapes

Baked chips, or healthy pita chips: Quarter whole wheat pitas; season, bake and bag to go.

Don't forget the water!

While Dining out:

Steer your child toward healthy menu selections. Cooking technique can make all the difference in the nutritional content of meals. Help your child avoid foods that are fried, and order baked, grilled, poached, sauteed, or stir-fried instead.

Fast food is sometimes unavoidable, so be sure to choose a restaurant that offers grilled chicken breasts, or have the child opt for a plain hamburger with relish and onions and mustard. Salt Lake City Restaurants Children should avoid sauces and mayonnaise, which can up the calorie, fat, sugar and sodium content of the meal significantly. Any sub sandwich shop can be a good choice, with lean meat such as turkey breast, roast beef or lean ham on a whole-wheat roll or wrap serving as body-friendly selections.

In a pinch, most hotels have a gift shop or other store that sells healthy items like bottled water, pieces of fresh fruit and individual servings of cereal. These are usually fairly high priced, however, so it's best to prepare ahead. Dedicate a small piece of luggage to edibles.

And even though your family vacation may be intended to let everyone relax and unwind, a good dose of activity will do everyone good. Family walks (even walking tours) are a great way to spend quality family time, and will get children exercising without them even knowing it. If the hotel has a pool, dive in and swim some laps.
