CHARLES CITY- New Year’s Day marks the beginning of healthier eating for many people.  Eating healthier is not only good for your well-being, but also your bank account says Dietician Stephanie Wharton.

Wharton, a dietician at Hyvee in Charles City, says the key to healthy eating is portion control.

Wharton says people should also monitor their drink intake and try to drink more water and mineral water.  A tip she gives for people who want to enjoy a healthier lifestyle is to try and prepare more home cooked meals with healthier substitutions.

Wharton says she is available at Hyvee Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays to assist people looking for healthier options.
