Making healthy meal choices for your family, especially when you’re on the go like Rocio and her military family, can be rewarding and fun if you have the right tools. The MyPlate, MyWins video: Meet Rocio features a real-life military family sharing their tips for success. Rocio shows how she and her husband teach their four boys the value of nutrition by preparing meals that feed their sons’ minds and bodies.
Rocio plans ahead and gets the kids involved in the dinner process. Not only do they enjoy being involved in the meal preparation, but it helps them to know what they are eating, and teaches them the value of nutrition and eating together.
This year, the MyPlate, MyWins video series has featured families sharing their real-life solutions for incorporating healthy eating into their busy lives.
Check out Rocio’s Healthy Eating Solutions:
- Make whole-wheat pancakes, waffles, or crepes
- Create a weekly menu board
- Get the whole family involved in meal preparation
- Eat meals together as a family
