Moderation key to healthy holiday eating

Posted: Updated:

Holidays are usually filled with tasty treats, huge dinner feasts, and a lot of chocolates and candies.

Health specialists say moderation is the key to eating healthy this holiday season

To keep those waist-lines thin, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator Kayla Colgrove says there are a few things people can do to avoid over-indulging.

Colgrove recommends filling plates half-full of fruits and vegetables at holiday meals, and taking smaller portions of unhealthier foods.

She also says recipes can be modified to make meals healthier.

One suggestion is to replace regular sour cream or cream cheese with low-fat options.
