If your kids aren’t doing well in school, it could have something to do with diet. According to Dr. Carl Timothy Morris from Powell Pediatrics, there is something to be said about the age-old saying, “You are what you eat.” If your family lives on unhealthy snacks at home and fast food for a quick meal, you, and your kids will be paying the price.
Watch The Sugar at Breakfast for a Healthy Diet
Breakfast cereals are loaded with sugar. Just look at the ingredients. Take an extra minute and prepare a healthy breakfast. Make some oatmeal and fruit or make a family breakfast with bacon, eggs, and toast. A healthy breakfast keeps young minds attentive.
A Healthy Diet at Lunchtime is Vital
A healthy lunch is just as essential as a good breakfast. Pack your kids lunch and include a sandwich, some fresh fruit, and other healthy lunchtime favorites. Skip the chips and cookies, as both are bad for teeth.
Snacks for a Healthy Diet
Keep healthy after school snacks on hand. Roll up some turkey and cheese slices and add some cucumber and celery. This will fill them up until dinnertime.
