Balanced Brown Bag Lunches
By Jennifer Saltiel
Lunch is just as important as breakfast since its nutrients can help kids to maintain a feeling of well-being throughout the day.
Children who eat processed foods and sugars for lunch may:
- have a harder time maintaining the rigors of the school day
- lose concentration
- feel sluggish during the afternoon
explains Kristian Guglielmo, a certified holistic health counselor.
Expand your child’s palette beyond peanut butter and jelly with these healthy lunch box ideas.
Got a picky eater on your hands? Involve your child in choosing the menu since research shows that children are more likely to eat food that they have selected themselves.
