Even though it seems like the summer weather is just starting in LA it’s almost time for back to school. Parents should be reminded of the importance of nutrition and a successful school year. Nutrition and learning go hand in hand. Kids who are nutritionally fit are more likely to have the energy, stamina and self-esteem that enhance their ability to learn.
One of the dilemmas I see my sister going through every day is what to pack kids for lunch especially when they are participating in after school programs. While I’m not a parent, I see several of my clients dealing with the same issue. As a nutritionist I want to provide you with links to several websites that offer free tips on kid friendly healthy foods, free video games that educates children about nutrition & making healthy food choices, free down-loadable coloring books, how to create healthy habits, free printable materials, and much much more. Hope you take advantage of this resources.
