Eating and Nutrition

Being a parent is all about helping your kids grow into smart, fun little humans. Your little ones need proper nourishment to keep their bones and brains strong and encourage development. You can help your kids make smart dietary choices by setting a great example.

It's important to learn how childhood obesity starts and ways to make sure your kids are learning good habits early on to prevent obesity from becoming an issue. 

Start by learning nutrition basics for kids, such as how to get your kids to eat healthy foods. Gain an understanding of how much protein, grains, dairy and other foods your kids should eat and what foods they should stay away from. 

If you opt to send your kids with a homemade lunch every day, you're going to need some ideas to keep the daily routine from getting boring. Skip the constant pb and j or bologna and opt for healthier packed lunches. Check out a menu of great ideas to get you through the week while feeding your kids foods they like that are full of nutrients. 

Every kid and household is different, so you'll have to go through some trial and error to find out what foods your kids will love and which ones they're not so excited about. Don't be afraid to try new foods and recipes together in the quest for good health and delicious meals.
