This is a sponsored post from BlogHer and Tropicana.

Let’s face it, it’s tricky to keep the family healthy ALL the time.  We are constantly trying to stay on top of good health whether it’s running around outside, riding bikes or walking through Disneyland…often 🙂  There’s no secret, it’s a challenge, but we try to have fresh fruit and vegetables on hand so we can eat as much as possible.  It’s nice when there is so much goodness packed into orange juice like Tropicana, I know my kids are getting their fruit serving just by drinking a big glass of juice!

    I have picky eater in my house so I do sneaky things like hide shredded zucchini in meatloaf or cook with half ground meat half ground turkey, same with pasta I hide whole wheat pasta mixed with regular pasta. Sometimes you just have to be sneaky.

    Christy says:

    I limit my kids’ video game time and make sure they spend time outside playing as much as possible. If they want a treat, or something sugary, I try to make sure they eat something healthy first, like a fruit/veggie.

    Tara says:

    My two babies and I walk where we can. The doctor’s, the park, the post office, the pharmacy, friends’ houses.

    Janssen says:

    I subscribe to a CSA – having a box of pre-paid vegetables every single week forces me to up the amount of veggies we consume by leaps and bounds!

    WE play ALOT outside… bike ride to the park alot in the summer!!!

    I try not to be a germ freak! That way they are exposed to things, and can build immunity.

  16. 66
    Kate says:

    We only eat out once a week so we have greater control over how our meals are prepared. Plus, it saves us money!

  17. 67
    Cheryl says:

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    We try a “new fruit or veggie” every week (I let the kids pick it) and try to incorporate as much colour as possible into our food! Multi vitamins are a daily thing too!

  18. 68
    Megan says:

    By making sure everyone stays active and gets enough exercise, from the kids to myself, not too much time in front of the TV, and lots of healthy home-cooked meals.

  19. 69
    Alicia B says:

    I make sure to always have everyone’s favorite fruits and veggies around to snack on, and we go on lots of walks.

  20. 70

    The main thing I do to help keep our family healthy is buy lots of fruits and veggies from Sam’s – if we have a large quantity in the house we work harder to incorporate them into every meal so nothing goes bad! Fruit and veggies are ALWAYS provided as snack options, and always included in my son’s packed lunches for school every day (and usually in mine too!) I work on meal planning each week to try to help ensure a balanced diet and we focus on trying to get out and play together and take walks together when we can!

    Lindsay says:

    Keep us active and add whole grains to our diet whenever possible.

    Aysley says:

    I’m at college so most of the time I just have to worry about keeping myself healthy by keeping portions in check and going to the gym. However, when I’m home I always offer to cook so I can pick healthier dinners 🙂

    WyKate says:

    We try to just live a healthy all around lifesyle and try not to stress being super healthy or super not-healthy. 🙂 So far so good.

    I try to cook new and healthy-ish foods for the fam so we can eat TOGETHER! My daughter and I also like to have dance parties…She runs circles around me, but it’s gets us movin’!

    Mellisa W. says:

    I put out a plate of raw veggies while I am finishing up cooking. The kids find it and dig in. More veggies, less meat and starch. Yeah!

  31. 81
    Chris says:

    We try to stay healthy by eating as many healthy foods as poosible, lots of home cooked meals, the kids are all very active through dance and/or sports activities, we try to take walks or ride bikes as a family, and if one of us do get sick we lock them downstairs till they get better!! Just kidding…..we also take a daily vitamin C, practice good handwashing and try getting plenty of rest!!

  32. 82

    We try to go on long walks with the dog and eat lots of fruits and veggies with sweets and treats in moderation.

    Amanda says:

    I try to make sure my kids eat well and drink plenty of water

  41. 91
    Nancy L says:

    I try to limit the amount of sugar and fats I use in cooking. Everyone is bombarded enough with sugar and fat from all the little things we eat, a little less I give my family is less they eat overall.

  42. 92
    DELANEY says:

    I made a homemade dinner most nights of the week. I know exactly what’s in the food I make, it’s good for us, and it saves us money.

  43. 93
    Marisa D says:

    Eat relatively healthy and exercise regularly!

  44. 94
    Valerie says:

    I just keep junk food out of the kitchen. Out of sight, out of mind!

  45. 95
    Bethany says:

    I’ve reduced the amount we eat out (ESPECIALLY take-out) – I found that most of the time it was a substitute for thinking ahead. Instead, eating out has become a time to have fun and enjoy fabulous food. I feel healthier, and it’s helped the budget too!

  46. 96

    I cook 99% of what we eat at home from scratch. That way even junk food is homemade and I feel a lot better about it 🙂

  47. 97
    Alissa says:

    Every Sunday I boil up a week’s worth of sweet potatoes, skinless boneless chicken, green beans, hard boiled eggs, etc. I chop up a head of lettuce too for the week. Then, every day for a meal I have a salad with chicken & hard boiled eggs and then a meal of chicken, sweet potatoes, and green beans. Keeps my diet on track to already have things prepared!

  48. 98
    Brooke says:

    We lovvvvve whole grains and eat at home most of the time, when you are eating out you really don’t know what you’re getting!

  49. 99
    Kacey Potter says:

    we drink lots of fluids including orange juice 😉

    Include plenty of fruits and veggies in our meals
