Following a healthy nutrition at home

Millions of women around the world STAY AT HOME for various reasons: they want to see their children grow up, they set up their own home office, the current pandemic situation, etc. Whatever the individual situation of each mother, they all want to eat a healthy diet.

Fortunately, it is possible to eat properly while staying at home.

Visit a nutritionist to find an appropriate diet that fits your lifestyle and individual needs. Once you know what you should eat you have to organize yourself well to comply with your diet.

Importance of good nutrition

While you STAY AT HOME it is important that you eat right to maintain a healthy weight and be a good role model for your children. A healthy weight leads to a good quality of life, longer life expectancy, good cardiorespiratory function, low cholesterol and the prevention of many diseases related to overweight and obesity.

Staying at home could lead to an overly relaxed behavior in terms of eating, so it is essential to self-control at mealtime. It is important to know that healthy food is nutritious, therefore a diet should not imply that you suffer from hunger.

Goal: follow a diet

You are at home with your children and you want to follow the diet prescribed by your nutritionist. You and your children will probably eat different foods because you are an adult and they are growing up. Simply separate your food from their food in the refrigerator and pantry. Explain to your children that you are following a diet to look and feel better, so you will be eating different foods. They will understand and support you in this decision.

However, continue to feed your children properly as you have been doing so far.

What you need to do

While you STAY AT HOME with your children it is important that everyone eats healthy, regardless of whether you are now following a specific diet prescribed by your nutritionist. In general terms, good nutrition is based on foods that contain vitamins and minerals and are low in fat and cholesterol.

That is why in your cupboard and refrigerator should have foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, cereals, legumes, among others. It is important that the whole family gets used to drinking water and natural juices.

You should avoid eating out of hours and eating sweets in excess.

However, once a week you can have something delicious to eat: pizza, cake, pasta or whatever you like.
