Kids going back to school? Help them make the grade with healthy foods to fuel brain power and give them the energy they need to get through the school day. This 1-day back-to-school meal plan includes healthy kid-approved ideas for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. Start the day with oatmeal, a great brain-booster that helps with concentration and cognitive skills. For a healthy school lunch, pack up a bento box with all the fixings for build-your-own mini tacos. Sneak vegetables into dinner and cut down on dishes with an easy one-skillet pasta recipe.
