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.
