Healthy Behaviors is about lifestyle habits, namely healthy eating and physical activity, which have proven connections to lifelong health and disease prevention.
Put the healthy foods in your fridge in an easy-to-reach spot.
How to do it
Easy to reach, easy to eat! Today, move your refrigerated healthy foods (like fruit, veggies, low-fat yogurt, and 100% fruit juice) where you can easily reach them, and move unhealthy foods like sugary and high-fat snacks to a spot in the back.
Why it matters
Out of sight, out of mind applies to food! Studies show that you're more likely to eat foods that are in your line of sight and not tucked away. In other words, if you open the refrigerator and see high-fat or sugary snack foods and drinks, you'll reach for those first. But if the first foods you see are fruits, veggies, juices, and other nutritious snacks, you'll go for those.
The life expectancy of a refrigerator is 14 years.
