Packaged foods can be a quick and easy way to get a meal on the table, yet can be high in fat, sodium, and sugar. The Give Convenience Foods a Healthy Makeover Handouts offers tips for making boxed, canned, and frozen foods healthier–without adding a lot of extra time or work.
The handout includes suggestions for improving the nutrition of boxed pasta meals, muffin and pancake mix, taco dinner kits, pasta sauce, canned soups, and more. An additional emphasis is placed on healthy cooking habits such as removing sodium and fat, adding flavor without adding salt, and seeking out whole grains whenever possible.
