Keep healthy basics in your refrigerator and pantry so that you always have the essentials on hand. When shopping for these basics, try to buy organic, Tracey and Tanya say.
Here are some items to add to your shopping list that they say will add more protein, calcium and vitamins into your child's favorite meals:
- Protein: Low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese, tofu, lean meat, chicken, fish and dried beans
- Calcium: Cheese, milk products, yogurt, salmon, tuna, low-fat ice cream, dark leafy veggies such as turnip greens and bok choy
- Vitamins: Colorful fruits and vegetables, milk products, eggs, healthy oils, whole grains, fish, red meat and nuts
