When we watched the film, Fed Up, I was shocked that schools allow fast food to be served! School kitchens contain deep fryers, microwaves, and displays for candy and junk food, how can children stay healthy or learn?According to Dr. Mark Hyman, “Schools have become hazardous health zones full of empty calories, junk food, and stripped-down physical education programs that are cultivating a nation of fatter, dumber, and more aggressive kids.” While that may be harsh, I think we can all agree there is some truth to it. 
So what can you do as parents to raise smarter, fitter, and happier children? Here are two suggestions for improving the quality of nutrition your children are receiving.

  1. Take Back Your Homes by eating at home together as a family and feeding your children a protein-rich whole food breakfast.
  2. Pack your child’s lunch.
  • Don’t get caught up in the fact that lunches for you or your kids have to be fancy. Often times the simpler the better…ensure there is protein, vegetables, healthy fat, and fruit or a starchy carbohydrate. 

Below are some suggestions of whole food and more optimal processed foods to pack

Hard-boiled eggs 

Banana or plantain chips

Fruit: grapes, strawberries, clementine, etc.

Raw or cooked veggies: carrots, celery, etc.

Apple sprinkled w/cinnamon 

Ham or turkey roll-up 

Soups, Chili 

Homemade trail mix
