Start the morning with oatmeal or protein. Oatmeal provides stable blood sugar and is good to keep kids from gaining weight. Normal blood sugar also provides a sharper mind and focus as well as energy. Add berries for added health benefits.
Protein sources can be a whey protein shake or a healthy yogurt with fat. Both provide 20 grams of high quality protein. Protein provides the body with amino acids which are converted into brain neurotransmitters and great for the immune system.
No coffee for kids, they aren’t adults!
Foods for Lunch
Give your kid an apple, more berries, homemade guacamole with gluten free chips or healthy yogurt. Be creative and let your kids be a part of their healthy decisions. Low blood sugar in children leads to irritability, and lack of focus during the time they should be doing homework. Homework is best right after school, and then go play. Get your kids outside and let them play! Exercising or playing outside is great for mental and immune system health.
Kids need to get to bed at a decent hour to allow enough time for their bodies to regenerate and recharge for the next healthy day!
