get healthy

We are all guilty of eating less than healthy around the holidays. And the truth is our unhealthy eating habits rub off on our kids. And let’s not even get into the things consumed while we are making those delicious treats.

Now that the holidays are behind us, it’s time to get ourselves back on track. And this needs to be a family affair. You need to get your kids back to eating healthy as well. So I’m going to give you some tips on how to encourage healthy habits after the holidays.

Find Healthy Snack Alternatives

My kids loves yogurt. So when we saw Chobani® Gimmies™ yogurts for kids I decided to give it a try. We’ll just say it was a big hit. Chobani® Gimmies™ yogurts for kids come in the flavors of Choco Chunk Cookie Dunk, ​Ooey Gooey S’more, ​Poppin’ Cotton Candy, Rainbow Sprinkle Cone and ​Best Birthday Ever. ​Being the big campers that we are, naturally ​the Ooey Gooey S’more flavor was my 8 year old’s first choice. He LOVED it!

They also have a line of milkshakes, Chobani® Gimmies™ Milkshakes. They come in ​Bizzy Buzzy Strawberry, Chillin’ Mint Chocolate, and ​Cookies and Cream Crunch. We tried the ​Cookies and Cream Crunch yogurt milkshake. I love that the milkshakes come with easy to use straws.

Here are the nutrition facts about this yummy snack that can be found at your local Walmart. Don’t forget you can use their handy online order pickup and delivery service to save time.

Chobani® Gimmies™ yogurts are made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients, and never any thickeners, preservatives, or artificial sweeteners. Like all Chobani® yogurts.

Drink More Water

Juices and sodas tend to be offered at every family gathering. If you are a family like mine who doesn’t normally have these drinks at home, your kids are like mine and all over the sugary drinks when they have a chance. The holidays are over so it’s time to give up the sugary drinks again. Encourage your kids to drink water as much as possible. There is nothing better for your kids than water and chances are your kids aren’t getting enough water. H20 is the way to go.

Sorry that last line was really cheesy!

Offer More Fruits and Veggies

Got a kid that is always starving on your hands. Give them a fruit or vegetable snack before offering anything else. This will give them a chance to decide if they really are hungry or if they are just bored eating. If they really are hungry it will give them a chance to get something really nutritious.

Lead by Example


Our kids are always watching us. So it’s important that we lead by example. If they see us drinking sodas and eating that cookie or cake, they are naturally going to want what we have. Drink more water yourself. Eat more healthy snacks yourself. Not only will this make YOU feel better, but you are going to be setting a fantastic example for your kids.

How are you doing recovering after the holidays? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks for getting back on track!

  1. It’s hard for us adults to even get back in the habit of eating healthy after months of party food. I’m trying though.

  2. Great article. It is always tough getting back on track after the holidays. Packing healthy lunches for my little ones is key.

  9. I started doing BLW with my baby and I learned quickly how many bad snack choices I was doing for myself. After making an effort to offer better options to my baby I started eating healthier as well. I wish he wasn’t dairy intolerant so that he could have yogurt as I think that’s such a good snack to have.

  10. This is such a good article! Going to forward to my mommy friends 🙂

  11. I’m doing my best to make myself eat healthy after the holidays. It’s difficult, but I know it will be worth it.

  12. i completely agree with leading by example, they are always watching us!

  13. I been trying to eat more veggies now! And not to eat out a lot.

  14. I agree that our eating habits rub off on our kids! My husband and I have been talking about that recently and getting into eating more veggies again so the kids will too, we’ve been slacking off and making more easy meals with less veggies which isn’t good.

  15. Been always trying to stay fit after holidays. I’m eating a lot of vegies now hehe

  16. The more fruits and veggies! You know when this works best– when friends are over! If I cut up carrots and peppers my kids would balk but suddenly they see their friends eating it and boom!

  17. Yoghurt is a good idea. We’ve been stuck in an ice cream haze. We’re a bit luckier in the southern hemisphere because it’s high summer and fruit is abundant, so we stock up on fruits and mainly enjoy that as a snack rather than sugary treats (apart from the ice cream, that is)

  18. Definitely a fan of healthy snack alternatives – helps a lot especially at work 🙂

  19. Love your post on healthy snack alternatives! I’m always trying to find alternatives to fuel my snack attacks!

  20. This is great! Normally vegan food is healthier overall so vegan snacks might be a way to go too 🙂

  21. Agreed, it can be super hard to stay on track after the holidays and NYE. Drink more water is always on my list. I like that Chobani has such awesome flavors.

  22. I am a person who is so into water and veggies but sad to say I am from a country that celebrates Christmas with a bang and like no other. It’s like cheat day every single day, LOL. There’s always a lot of dishes offered to feast on. Thanks for sharing this post, now I am equally motivated to get right back on my routine.
