One of the main focuses for Christmas, besides family and gifts, is food, and it's important people are making healthy choices when preparing for parties and feasts. Joyce Fikri, Nutrition Educator at the St. Louis Dairy Council said it can be easy to not eat healthily during the holidays. She said some ways to stay healthy include not skipping meals, adding more protein to the diet, and staying active.
Fikri said she knows leftovers are also very important to people to make sure the food doesn't go to waste. But during the holiday season people get a bit tired of eating turkey. Fikri said to make sure this doesn't happen, be creative when making leftover meals, and if needed, freeze the turkey and come back to it in a few months.
