Break From School, Not Fitness

Thanksgiving is a time where food is often more plentiful than usual. Meals may include many more side dish options and lots of tasty desserts. With all the excess food, it is important to remember that children have little tummies. They need smaller portions to start.
A good rule of thumb is 1 Tbsp for every year of age. Encourage kids to try the main parts of the meal before moving onto dessert, but avoid rules around eating vegetables to get to dessert. Save beverages for after the meal and keep the choices healthy. Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
