For many of you, after school sports comes along with back to school. If your child has never participated in sports before, this might be overwhelming from both a scheduling and a nutrition perspective. As we previously talked about, good nutrition supports the growth and development, immune system, and academic achievement of your child. It can also help them become a stronger, more consistent athlete.
Sending healthy lunches to school with your child IS possible! It doesn't have to be time consuming or stressful. The first thing to figure out is if your kids like variety or if they are fine eating the same thing every day for a whole week or more.
Back to school is coming and with it comes falling back into daily routines. This time of year can bring hectic mornings - the return of the morning alarm, getting breakfast ready, packing lunches, making sure homework is completed and packed, after school activities, and ensuring kiddos are tucked into bed on time.
