Healthy Happenings:
Healthy Children

 

As the new school year starts for our children and grandchildren; young adults going away to college it is a great time to get into a healthy routine. Schools are attempting to improve their school lunches using low fat and fat free foods. I agree with reducing or eliminating junk foods, and soda pop. I worry that so many children will continue to consume packaged foods that are stripped of their nutrients, leaving them less satisfied and even hungrier due to the lack of nutrients. Providing our families with high quality nutrient dense foods can help with improved learning potential and the ability to maintain a healthy weight. Add to that a return to regular exercise programs such as walking programs and/or gym classes our children can thrive this year.
