LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Many Nebraskans will indulge in holiday treats this season, and a health specialist says moderation is the key to staying healthy.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln extension educator Kayla Colgrove recommends filling plates half-full of fruits and vegetables at holiday meals, and then taking smaller portions of unhealthier foods. Colgrove says even eating healthy foods can lead to weight gain if too much is eaten.

Colgrove also urges caution at buffet-style dinners, which tend to encourage overeating.

Colgrove says recipes can also be modified to make meals healthier. One suggestion is to replace regular sour cream or cream cheese with low-fat options.
