Driving is an everyday event for most people. Whether we are going to work or school, the grocery store or just to visit a friend, we usually get in our vehicles without giving a second thought to the possibility that our actions may cause us to become distracted drivers.
Distracted driving occurs any time you take your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, or your mind off the task of driving safely.
The following are just a few types of driving distractions:

You can enjoy your meals while making small adjustments to the amounts of food on your plate. Healthy meals start with more vegetables and fruits and smaller portions of protein and grains. And don’t forget dairy — include fat-free or low-fat dairy products on your plate, or drink milk with your meal.
Use a smaller plate at meals to help with portion control. That way you can finish your entire plate and feel satisfied without overeating.
