PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Most of our food choices are made on impulse. To make healthy foods more convenient, place them where you can see them.

Keep a bowl of fruit on the kitchen counter or cut up fruits and vegetables and place them in plastic baggies so they’re easy to grab for a quick snack.

You can also make nutritious choices more attractive by giving them a fun name. This works for kids – remember how we always liked animal crackers?

One other point. People like foods that they feel are normal to eat or prepare. Make a habit of setting salad bowls on the dinner table nightly, even if they’re not used. Better yet, serve a side salad with dinner every night.
