Tip 11- Can Eating The Right Lunch Help Your Kids Do Better In School?


  • Protein can help your kids to stay focused (i.e., hard boiled eggs, hummus, sliced lean meat, string cheese, and low sodium turkey jerky).
  • Veggies/fruits provide vitamins and fiber, which help balance blood sugar levels (keeping moods stable) and offer some protection from diabetes (i.e., sliced red bell pepper, sliced cukes, and cherry tomatoes).
  • Carbohydrates are the long-term fuel that keeps kids running all day long (i.e., whole grain crackers, English muffins and tortillas, but try to avoid anything white).
