Health Guide for the Holidays

Don't let the holiday dinners pack on the pounds - here's the nutritional run down of the top 11 foods at your table.
The holidays are a great time to see family and old friends, and the feasts that go along with them only add to the experience. We know you’re probably not going to eat in moderation, especially with older relatives scolding you for being too skinny. This guide is here to show you what’s in 11 traditional holiday foods you’re used to eating. If nothing else, it will tell you what to eat more of and what to eat in smaller portions.

Nutritional information and advice come from Melissa Dobbins, national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as the USDA. All daily value percentages are based off a 2,000-calorie diet.
