In a healthy diet, how you eat is important as what you eat
It is important to try and maintain an evening routine that includes family meals at the table, not in front of the TV or computer screen or while reading a book and doing homework. It is possible to prepare the meals together with your children or adolescents, as a joint activity: Choosing recipes together, uploading photos of prepared dishes to social networks, explaining the different raw materials, and getting familiar with healthier preparation methods. Fruits and vegetables should always be on the table as an integral part of any meal.
