Mornings can be one of the most hectic parts of the day for busy parents, and it’s easy to skimp on the little things that keep you at your best and ready for the rest of the day.



Heinz Nutritionist Carla Addison shares a few easy tips to get the day started right:



Plan it out. A good day starts with a good plan. Think about what you'll eat not only for breakfast but also throughout the day before hunger strikes. This way, you're less likely to indulge and more likely to make smart choices. Also, be sure to plan healthy snacks for in between meal times. You'll feel prepared and ready to take on the day with confidence.



Fresh fruit is your friend. Always leave a bowl of fresh fruit on the counter so you never walk out of the door hungry, even if you're in a big rush. Keep the fruit bowl at eye level so that it's in sight and top of mind for everyone. For those extra hectic mornings when you don't have time to sit down and eat, bananas, peaches, oranges and apples make great on-the-go options.



Write in a food journal. A food journal is a great way to identify the healthy choices that you're making and recognize the food habits that you might need to change. Start the day with a few minutes of documentation, whether that's writing down your snacks from the day before, a grocery list or a meal schedule for the coming week.
