When it comes to anything related to children and school, I believe in taking a very involved approach. I’ve worked in a variety of classrooms and other educational positions and I just don’t think you can take seriously enough the future of our children’s lives. This most definitely includes school lunch. The way we nourish our children’s minds and bodies will either enable or hinder them in their progress. I promise! I see it all the time. The kids who eat processed, sugary foods have a harder time focusing and sticking to tasks that require stamina. Alternatively, students who have eaten more whole and natural foods are able to outperform the others almost every time. So, for the benefit of our children and their success, here are 12 healthier lunch options to keep your little scholar focused and ready to learn.
