Back to School

Many students across the state are starting the new school year. It’s a great time to focus on the nutrition of our children both in school and at home.  Creating healthy habits can help kids:

  • Concentrate and do better in school
  • Feel good about themselves
  • Grow and develop strong bodies
  • Lower their future risk of diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer

You can feed your family healthy snacks in the time it takes to open a bag of chips!  When they get home from school, try a snack of carrots and peanut butter, celery and creamcheese, or a simple piece of fresh fruit.
