The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases suggests:
- Limit your intake of pizza, sodas and sweet treats.
- Drink plenty of water and low-fat or fat-free milk. Lean dairy products will help build stronger bones.
- Fill half of your plate with fruits and veggies at each meal. Stick to lean meat and poultry, beans, eggs, tofu and other healthier sources of protein.
- Opt for whole grains, such as brown rice and whole-wheat bread or pasta.
- Make wise choices at fast food restaurants. Avoid a super sized meal, or split a meal with a friend. Make healthier choices at the school cafeteria, too.
