Now that summer’s nearly over and the kids are heading back to school, it’s easy to feel a bit intimidated by how you’re going to approach keeping their food on the healthy side, especially since many schools offer lunch programs with a lot left to be desired. No need to feel you’ll have to default to buying junky, processed foods because there’s a cartoon on the box or you don’t have time to cook. Why would you want your kids to put corn syrup, hydrogenated oils or artificial anything in their little bodies?
It’s back-to-school time, and you know what that means—lots of unwanted sugary snacks and processed foods end up in the classroom and in your brown paper bag. But no need to worry. Packing a wholesome lunch will make it easier for your child to eat healthier throughout the day.
