Snack – NUTRITION TIP OF THE WEEK

acac Midlothian

snack Robious CorridorNow is a good time to get the family more focused on healthy habits for the school year. A snack basket without chips and fruit roll ups is a good place to start. Low sugar granola bars, dehydrated or fresh fruit, raw veggies with a dip, frozen Greek yogurt, homemade trail mix, celery with peanut butter, baked sugar snaps, or string cheese with nitrite free turkey are a few ideas to keep the kids energized all day.

If lunch is packed the night before, it allows a few extra minutes to eat a protein packed breakfast. Parents, we need to follow the same guidelines as the kids. Coffee is not a complete breakfast. Last but not least, give kids water or milk for lunch; the juice boxes generally have too much sugar. If kids can have a water bottle at their desk, remind them to keep it with them and hydrate throughout the day. The brain will function better when we give out body what it needs.
