Many school cafeterias offer unwholesome foods, including potato chips and cookies. To make sure that your child gets the nourishment he needs during the day, send them to school with healthy lunch options.
This video highlights foods that make nutritious lunch choices. When preparing your child’s lunch, have proteins, carbohydrates, and fats each make up approximately a third of his meal. Filling protein selections include chicken, tuna, and turkey. Whole grain pasta and wheat bread make wholesome carbohydrate options. You can even include a bag of nuts, stick of cheese, or cup of yogurt as a healthy fat alternative to high-calorie chips and cookies.
