Calories seem to add up faster during the holidays. Maybe you are trying to avoid certain foods, but you may be cutting out the wrong ones. Registered Dietitian Tara Todd came on Show Me St. Louis to show us some foods we need to be eating.

It’s important to keep whole grains and enriched grains in your diet. Prunes are also a good thing to add to your diet. And for those nights that get a little crazy with the kids and you need just a quick meal, Cup Noodles are a good option (the ones with a full serving of vegetables).
