Seven steps to a happy, healthy kid.

WHETHER YOU COOK OR BUY YOUR KID’S LUNCH, ALWAYS REMEMBER:

1) SAY “YES” TO FRUITS & VEGETABLES

Fruits and vegetables are like hitting

the jackpot when it comes to nutrition.

They make your plate more colorful and they’re packed with vitamins and fiber.

 

2) WHAT ARE THE FACTS BEHIND FAT?

Kids need some fat in their diets to stay healthy.

Some of the best low-fat foods are fresh or dried fruits,

vegetables, and skim and low-fat milk.

 

3) INVITE WHOLE GRAINS IN YOUR LIFE.

“Grains” include breads, cereals, rice, and pasta.

 

 

4) BALANCE YOUR KID’S LUNCH!

A double order of French fries would not make for a balanced lunch.

Why don’t you try to mix some grains, some fruits, some vegetables, some meat or protein foods

and last but not least, some dairy foods such as milk and cheese?

 

5) AVOID TOO MANY PACKAGED SNACKS!

Many schools make salty snacks, candy, and soda available in the cafeteria or in vending machines.

It’s OK to have these foods once in a while, but they shouldn’t be on your lunch menu.

 

6) MIX IT UP!

Do you eat the same lunch every day?

Even the hamburger becomes tedious if it is served everyday, five times a day!!

 

 

7) DRINK TOO!

It’s not just about what you eat — drinks count, too!

Milk has been a favorite lunchtime drink for a long time.

If you don’t like milk, choose water or a fresh juice.
