Get exercise while choosing spring fruits. Either go berry picking at a farm or take a walk through an outdoor market.


On the weekend take a family hike with a snack in a backpack or bag. Remember variety. Dry cereals, dried fruits, nuts and apple slices won't weight the pack clown. Encourage exercise-take a family walk after dinner.
