Monthly Focus: Healthy Food Choices

Making healthy choices for school matters:

Involve your kids in planning and packing their own lunches for school. This can help:

  • Improve their food skills
  • Gets kids to try new foods
  • Makes kids feel part of the process
  • Decrease the amount of food that comes home uneaten

School lunches and snacks:

  • provide children with the energy and nutrients they need throughout the day
  • are a major source of the essential vitamins and minerals they need to grow and develop

On the weekend, plan school lunches with your kids for the week ahead. Get their input on foods they like, including:

  • vegetables and fruits
  • whole-grain foods
  • protein foods

Stock up on healthy on-the-go snacks you can add to their main meal. Think about what you will be making for dinner during the week. Some of the leftovers could be used to make quick and easy lunches the next day.

Don’t forget to consider your schedule. Think about whether you can easily prepare items in the morning. If not, wash, chop or pack the night before to make mornings easier. Choose what works best for you
