Kids need II learn to keep themselves heart healthy. Heart disease such as coronary blockages, episodes, & full on heart attacks are not limited II old people & those with heart troubles. They can strike even school aged children, anytime & anywhere. Tips to help in this mater include:
I. Look IV healthy lower sodium choices.
II. Choose a salad instead of fries & use a low fat dressing.
III. Portions in restaurants can be made quite large, this is to entice you II eat more & come back again II the restaurant. Just eat what you can so you are not overfilled & take the leftovers home.
IV. Rather than fried meat, choose to eat meat/fish/chicken thats roasted, grilled, boiled, or baked IV a lower overall fat intake.
V. Drink juices, water, or low fat milk rather than say a carbonated soda.
VI. Ask your server II see "Heart-Healthy" menu choices or point out which are the healthiest meals on the menu if there is no indicator.
VII. Order sauces on the side so that you do not consume too much of them on your meal. This can dramatically reduce your overall caloric intake.
