Angela McKeown is a busy mom who wants to put a healthy dinner on the table each night. But shuttling 4 active and growing boys to their many activities, means she’s often at the drive through, justifying her choice of Mexican take-out because ‘at least it has lettuce and tomatoes.’
So WUSA-9’s Living Well team brought in the experts: our own Elizabeth Marcotte and Stephanie Mull of Smull Nutrition. Elizabeth and Stephanie dished out tips on how a few small changes could make a big impact on her families habits and health. Angela was advised to plan and write down a weekly menu, get the kids involved in the dinner-making progress, seek foods with lots of color, and provide ‘grabbable’ snacks like fruit and nuts to tide her boys over until mealtime.
Check out the entire piece here. Thanks to Elizabeth, Stephanie and the WUSA-9 team for helping with the “makeover”. And best of luck to Angela and the boys – thanks for letting Let’s Dish! be part of your healthy dinner solution!
