Making Healthy Eating Fun


Try these tips for making foods delicious and appealing.

  • Plan meals that include a wide palette of colors and shapes for eye-appeal, and a variety of textures and temperatures for tongue-appeal.
  • Perk up food flavors with small amounts of intense-flavored ingredients such as sharp cheese, toasted nuts or fruity olive oil.
  • Try a spoonful of cheese sauce, a shaving of sweet butter or a drizzle of creamy dressing to add luscious flavor to bitter vegetables and salad greens, and promote absorption of fat-soluble nutrients.
  • Be adventurous. Expand your tastes to enjoy a variety of foods. Your taste buds will thank you!
