Video: What is Clermont CAN?
The term “back to school” can be music to a mother’s ears but thinking about packing a healthy lunch that her child will actually eat can be a nightmare. Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but lunch runs a close second. Studies have shown that children who eat a well-balanced lunch often do better in school and are more alert. While it can be difficult enough to get your child to eat right when you are there, the temptations of pizza and vending machines in the cafeteria make it challenging to get your child to eat what you’ve packed.
First of all, remember that it’s not your lunch. Let your child weigh in on what they want to pack in their lunches, and offer them a few healthy options to they feel like they are in control.
