It’s back to school time again and with that comes questions about nutritious lunches and after school snacks. With having 5 children, 14 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren I know a thing or two about providing healthy lunches and after school snacks for kids.
Kids seem to have never-ending appetites and parents want to feed them nutritious options. Children imitate parent’s actions, so be sure you are setting a good example and eating a healthy, balanced diet too. The role modeling with your kids now has been shown to have a profound impact on their future health and eating habits.
