Janet Chrostowski, a registered dietitian at Hamot Medical Center, cautioned against hopping off the treadmill and heading for the crisper.
"I'm afraid people are going to think, 'I can eat all the high-fat, saturated-fat foods I want, as long as I eat my eight vegetables,'" she said. "Good health comes from a healthy, low-fat diet in general and 60 minutes a day of activity." Chrostowski said she doesn't know enough about the study subjects to draw too many conclusions. "We don't know what other lifestyle factors or healthy habits that the people were studied had," she said. "Most people strive for one, if that, each day," Chrostowski said. The CDC program recommends a 40-year-old sedentary man needs two cups of fruit and three cups of vegetables. A sedentary woman of the same age needs 1.5 cups fruit and 2.5 cups of vegetables. Chrostowski said she herself gets five or six servings a day. "I work really hard at it," she said with a laugh. Chrostowski said she gets at least one or two with breakfast with a piece of fruit and a small glass of 100 percent juice. She suggests making a lunch that includes a 2-cup salad, snacks of fruits and vegetables between meals, and a half-plate of vegetables at dinner. Finish up with a fruit for dessert, and you're at eight. "It's not unachievable, but you have to make it part of your daily routine," she said.

"It's a combination of inactivity, larger food portions and unwise food choices," Hamot Medical Center dietitian Janet Chrostowski said.
So, if your child is going to snack -- and they will -- it's important to give them healthy foods, Chrostowski said. "It's the quality of the foods and whether they are eating them in addition to their meals," Chrostowski said. "You need to watch how many calories they consume over the course of a day." Here are some snacking tips for families to follow: - No snacking before meals. "Children shouldn't be eating for an hour before their meals," Chrostowski said. "You don't want them full at dinner because they won't eat their meal." An evening snack is fine, if your family eats dinner relatively early, Chrostowski said. But if you don't eat until 7 p.m. or later, your child should be good for the night. - Mix and match. Children love to dip their foods, so give them apple slices with low-fat yogurt or baked tortilla chips with salsa. "I recommend two food groups in a snack, so try string cheese with multigrain crackers," Chrostowski said. - Keep snacks away from the TV. "The juices have vitamins, but they also have a lot of calories," Chrostowski said. Just make sure to use the snack-sized bags, not the sandwich-sized ones, Chrostowski said. - Don't be fooled by the label. Just because a food is marketed as low fat or fat free doesn't mean it's low in calories. "I like the 100 calorie packs that are popular," Chrostowski said.
