Healthy Meal Tips

It can often be difficult to get the variety of fruits and vegetables you need every day. But with a little creativity and help from Del Monte, creating dishes packed with a variety of fruits and vegetables has never been quicker or easier.

Try some of these great ideas to help you get started. Maybe you'll even discover a new family favorite.

  • Encourage healthy eating in your family with these tips:
    • At the grocery store, talk about the names, shapes, colors, and sizes of fruits and vegetables
    • Teach your kids to spell the names of fruits and vegetables 
    • Talk about how fruits and vegetables are grown and where they are grown
    • Talk about fruits and vegetables eaten in other cultures, and try new ones
  • Keep a running list of items you need to pick up at the grocery store so when you do have to go you won't be shopping from memory.
  • Did you know that the diameter of the average dinner plate has grown by 2 inches over the last 20 years? Filling your plate could contribute to overeating. If you tend to eat large portions try switching to a smaller dinner plate or try not to let one food run into another on your plate.
  • During the holiday season it can be difficult to fit in your daily workout. So take advantage of those shopping trips! Wear your pedometer and take a walk around the mall before you hit the stores. Aim for 10,000 steps every day.
