This year, commit to making your (or your child’s) back to school routine more healthy! For many kids and college students – going back to school means you are actually more active than you have been during the summer. You may have to walk a lot on campus, play sports or participate in other activities. Being more active is great, but you need to make sure what you are eating (or feeding your kids) will fuel these activities and not cause weight gain. For starters, try to prepare all the meals yourself. School lunches are getting better and better, but the only way to control what you eat is to make it yourself. In the videos below (featured on CBS), I show some of my favorites for school lunches, snacks and foods to boost brain power.
