Fun Foods!Keep you Happy, and Healthy!

What is a fun food?Even healthy eaters have an occasional treat. These treats are called fun foods. A fun food is a food that wouldnt be considered healthy, but it is something you like to eat. These foods are perfectly ok to eat if they are part of a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle means that 90% of the time you are making healthy choices. Healthy choices include fruits, vegetables, whole grains and foods that arent overly processed. These are examples of fun foods you might pick to eat.

Why is it ok to eat these foods?These foods are ok to eat because you would only eat a little bit, every now and then. Eliminating certain foods from your diet can make you want to eat them even more. If all foods are acceptable to eat, then you can make healthy decisions as to when and how often to eat them.Fun Food RulesFun foods should be prepackaged so that you arent tempted to eat too much.Try to allow yourself ONE fun food a day.
