Tip of the Day
Boost Nutrition at Lunchtime
With the sound of school bells lingering, it's time to get your child ready to head back to school. While all of your child's meals are important, school lunchtime is an excellent time to refuel your child's energy. Start the new school year right with hearty and nutritious lunches to boost your child's energy:
- Peanut butter spread on whole-wheat bread, with celery sticks, fruits and nuts.
- Pita pocket stuffed with turkey, cheese, lettuce and chopped tomatoes, along with a cup of milk.
- Yogurt granola parfait with whole-grain crackers.
- Deli meat pinwheels made by wrapping the meat around bread and slicing into bite size pieces.
