How Can I Enjoy Special Events?
Your Nutrition at Special Events
You can still enjoy the food and fun at family functions or special events. If it’s being held at a restaurant, check the menu online. See if you can find a nutritional chart. If not, ask for this when you’re at the restaurant. If there’s no menu, try sampling very small portions of each item if you need help deciding what you want to make a meal out of. Always take small bites and chew thoroughly and if the food is being served to you, don’t feel you have to eat everything on the plate. Eat what you normally would and if there’s too much, eat a balance of everything placed on your plate.
