Back to school healthy eating tips
Transcript - Back to School Healthy Eating Tips
In the kitchen, the Thuot-Fortin family play dice.
Narrator: The Thuot-Fortins don't worry about the back-to-school rush because they like planning ahead, especially with meals!
Flashback: The family shops in the fruits and vegetables section of a grocery store. The young son pushes the shopping cart.
Saskia Thuot, opening a plastic bag: I'll take the tomatoes.
Pierre-Alexandre Fortin and Saskia Thuot face the camera.
Pierre-Alexandre: We try to go grocery shopping as a family as much as possible, so the kids feel more involved, and we help them make healthy choices.
The kids put a bag of onions and a carton of eggs in the cart. Saskia touches and smells the tomatoes.
Saskia Thuot: And being in a hurry isn't an excuse. Sometimes, we go with pre-cut veggies and fruits to save time. Carrots?
Saskia places carrots, zucchinis, and cucumbers in the cart.
Pierre-Alexandre: We try to watch the salt and sugar. You have to be careful.
Pierre-Alexandre reads the ingredients on a can of tomatoes. The kids put a loaf of bread and a carton of milk in the cart.
Saskia Thuot: That's good. Bread. I tend to buy extra when I'm shopping, so we always have enough for lunches and snacks. And we never waste anything. Right, Pierre?
They both smile brightly.
In the kitchen, the family joyfully plays a game of dice.
