Food to Pack for you Kids

 Children need nutritious lunches to help them stay healthier, concentrate in school and play sports.

The FDA suggests how to pack a healthier lunch:

-          Plan your kids’ meals for the entire week.

-          Fill your child's lunchbox with foods that contribute to healthy growth and weight maintenance.

-          Ask your child to help pack lunch. This will create habits for building healthy and balanced meals.

-          Focus on the basic food groups: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, dairy and proteins.


-          Check for ideas on healthy food websites.

-          Make sure portions are appropriate for your child.

-          Read nutritional labels to help you select the healthiest options.
