Many schools provide lunches for their students but packing your child’s lunch is a much healthier alternative. Being sure to remember that your child’s overall health is at stake. Its hard to make mistakes packing healthy lunches with these 3 easy suggestions.
1. Bread – using whole wheat bread for sandwiches is much healthier than using plain white bread.
2. Chips are not a healthy snack. Try cut veggies, fruit or trail mix with nuts and seeds for a healthy alternative.
3. Milk is a better beverage than soda or sweetened beverages. Remind them to rinse with water after a meal if they cannot brush their teeth at school.
A Solid Foundation
Over consumption of sugars and starch can lead to chronic related diseases and type 2 diabetes. Creating a solid foundation for your child’s health at home will help them make wiser decisions when they are out on their own. Healthy lunches will help your child keep their teeth and bodies healthy!
