Breakfast: Start your day with a healthy breakfast. I helps with focus and it can help you do better during the day. Whether it’s cereal with fruit and low-fat milk, or whole-wheat toast with fruit jelly, yogurt with fruit, idli sambhar, or last night's leftovers!

Healthy snack:  It’s good to have snacks throughout the day. They are a good way to stay alert. Choose snacks from various food groups - a glass of low-fat milk and a few graham crackers, an apple or low-fat yogurt and raisins, or some dry cereal. For cookies, chips and candy make sure to watch your portion.

Balance is key: Too much of a good thing is not good! You musn’t give up favorite foods to eat healthy. You just have to watch how much of them you eat. A home made pizza in moderation is always a good option. Your body needs nutrients from a variety of foods. Balancing food choices will help you get all the nutrition your body needs.
