Mindless eating can derail you, especially around big family holidays like Easter. But the St. Louis District Dairy Council wants you to know how to avoid packing on the pounds this weekend. Nutrition educator Kelly Maher says there are lots of ways to eat healthy, but tells KZIM-KSIM that portion control is the key. Maher says that adding a small amount of protein to your snacks can keep you full longer, like low fat cheese or yogurt. When you snack on fresh fruit, she says you will not be tempted by those Easter candies for the kiddos. Visit stldairycouncil.org for more healthy eating tips.
