Remember to spend time with family and loved ones during the holidays. A fun activity is preparing dinner. When it comes to food, you can put out a bowl of fruit or veggies for a healthy snack option for guests who cannot wait until dinner is ready. You can offer a variety of food with dinner as well by substituting things with low-fat or fat-free dairy products, whole grain breads, and lean meats.
