- Stick to heart-healthy meals and snacks, focusing on whole grains, lean proteins, fruits and vegetables.
- Drink water instead of sugary beverages.
- Avoid processed foods, which tend to be high in sugar, salt and fat.
- Look for recipes that use less sugar, or use unsweetened applesauce or sugar substitutes.
