A healthy lunch will leave a student feeling energized and ready to learn. On the other hand, tater-tots and fries will make a student feel fatigued and obese. Why do healthy lunches help students so much? That’s because nutritious foods provide fiber, vitamins, and minerals. School-aged children must have proper nourishment, especially at a time they’re still growing. With all this in mind, here are some ways you can ensure your child eats better. 1 2

Make Lunch At Home

As a parent, you most likely know what your child likes to eat the best. Making lunch at home will make you more in control and aware of what your child will be eating. However, you probably will have to make the food look appealing to encourage your child to eat it.

Cafeteria Menu

The school your child attends to might have an online menu for what will be served. This will allow you to see if the meal on that day will be healthy or not. If the meal isn’t healthy, you can simply make a lunch at home for your child.

Other Lunch Lines

Some schools often have different meals in separate lines. Their school might have a salad line that serves salad every day, for instance.
