Nutrition Month TIP#6: Make healthy eating easy. Organize your fridge so healthy foods are the first ones you see.


When you open your fridge door, the first foods you should see are healthy ones. Studies show that people are more likely to choose healthy foods, such as vegetables and fruit, if
they’re easily available. Try these simple tips to organize a healthy fridge:
• Keep fresh snacks, such as hard-boiled eggs, cut veggies and fruit, bean dips and yogurt in plain sight.
• If you have snacks that are higher in fat and/or sugar, such as cakes and pudding, put them into containers you can’t see through – that way, you won’t be tempted. Do this with foods in your pantry too!
• Keep milk, sparkling water and pitchers of plain water front and centre. Add lemon, lime or orange slices or mint leaves to water for a refreshing drink.
• Keep your fridge free of clutter so you can see the healthy foods you have.
