It’s that time of year parents relish and kids dread. As kids head back to school, give some thought to a key factor in school success, proper nutrition. It may be easy to throw prepackaged foods into a lunchbox or for an after school snack, but with a little planning, you can make a kid friendly meal to send to school or to snack on after school that will keep them going all day. A healthy approach for a lunchbox should include a protein with whole grains and fresh garden goods, then add a sensible treat.
