Question & Answer

Question

Can you give me some meal suggestions that are tasty, convenient, and nutritious for my children?

Answer

For Breakfast:

Choose cereals with less than 10 grams of sugar and at least 2 grams of fiber per serving. If your child prefers a sweet taste, jazz up unsweetened cereal with sliced peaches or bananas, strawberries, or blueberries.

When It Comes to Lunch:

Children who help make their own lunches are more likely to eat them. You can also make lunches fun by cutting sandwiches with cookie cutters or decorating your child's lunch bag.
