When eating out, it can be easy to make poor choices due to convenience. Take time while at restaurants to decode the menu. Look for items that are baked, broiled, grilled, poached, steamed, boiled, or roasted. Take advantage of the 10 Tips: Eating Foods Away from Home or ideas from MyPlate, MyWins Tips: Make Your Takeout Healthier. For more healthful tips, check out wellness.ccs.k12.nc.us.
