When schools reopen, one of the most common concerns for most parents is ensuring that their children observe proper hygiene since it can greatly determine the ability of students to concentrate in class. Nutrition should start off with a healthy breakfast. Though you are rushing to get things done in the morning, ensure your child eats a healthy breakfast by keeping low calorie foods which are easy to fix at hand and let them carry something like yogurt or cheese as a snack. The next important meal is lunch and since this is often served in school, you can help your child pick out healthy foods by going through the school menu and selecting healthy and nutritious foods.

If they have to prepare their own school lunch, pack foods such as string cheese, whole fruits, pudding, sandwiches, crackers and vegetables and advice them not to change their healthy foods with junk foods such as cookies as some are prone to do.
