Planning and Shopping for a Week's Worth of Healthy Lunches
Teaching kids to eat healthfully starts with smart shopping.
It’s no secret that prime real estate in the cereal aisle is at children’s eye level, so they can easily spot the sugary cereals and beg Mom and Dad to buy them. Try to resist— there are plenty of healthier options that still satisfy a sweet tooth. Be sure to look for whole- grain cereals high in fiber—5 grams or more—or cereals that have less than 9 grams of sugar per serving.
