Eating Nutritionally at School

The early years of school are often very exciting. From learning early lessons of math to how to spell words its a Chance to have a bit of fun. The first of school is also a great time to focus on good habits. It may seem that everything is new but others may welcome the new changes but maybe not to many at one time.

Packing a lunch box and taking it to school is one of the delights of a young students life. They are able to show responsibility and be successful at it. Base the amount of food on how much your own child prefers. If your child has food allergies or other health conditions make sure to note this as well.

Here are a few ideas for packing lunches:
Avoid the prepackaged snacks and lunch products. These can bust a budget as they may cost more money than buying lunch from the school each month. Packaged foods also contain mystery preservatives that are not healthy Instead try this:

Fresh fruit kabob with tube of low-fat yogurt;
Apple slices with peanut butter and low-fat granola;
Fresh cut veggies and whole-wheat pita chips with individual container of flavored hummus (pizza flavor is now available from Sabra!);
Bowl of vegetable-based soup with whole-grain crackers;
Trail mix with low-fat milk;
Low-fat cheese with whole-grain crackers; and
Two whole-grain fig bars with low-fat milk or yogurt
