Health Tip of the Homestand
Running out of ideas for your child's school lunch? Why not try some healthy alternatives? You might consider including pitas or wrap sandwiches stuffed with grilled chicken or veggies in addition to the old standby of peanut butter and jelly. If your child is eating cafeteria meals, encourage them to choose healthier foods such as grains, vegetables and fruits, and lean meats or beans. For snack time, try dried fruit, low-fat yogurt, or popcorn.
