Back To School Nutrition Choices Begin At Home
Integrative Flavors has manufactured soup bases and gravy mixes since 1938.
It’s back to school time again, and it is important for parents to be aware of the nutrition choices that their children are making every day at lunchtime. An excellent first step towards ensuring that your child eats a healthier lunch would be to review the school lunch menu every week with your child and have them pick what they would like to eat. Discuss which foods the child likes and which foods might be a healthier alternative. Children are more likely to eat healthily if they are involved in the process of deciding what they’re going to eat.
Packing a lunch for your child is usually the best way to ensure that your child will bring a healthy meal to school, but that does not necessarily mean that the meal will be eaten. To help assure that your child will eat their lunch, involve them in the process of making the lunch. When packing a healthy lunch, include something sweet for your child, such as mini chocolate bars or a box of raisins, so that they won’t look elsewhere to satisfy their craving for sweets.
Another important factor in teaching your child to eat healthy is to not send mixed messages to them by allowing them to eat unhealthily at home. Be sure to eat nutritious meals at home to set an example for the children. Taking the time to make a healthier meal may affect your child’s future nutrition choices.
