Five time-saving tips for simplifying your back-to-school routine As summer winds down, it means fewer back-
yard barbecues, shorter days, and most of all, kids headed back to school. The transition from sum- mer to school can be daunting for any parent and each year it seems the to-do list gets longer. Lisa Gurry, one of Working Mother Magazine’s 2009 Moms of the Year, has some ideas with the help of Bing.com
that can make it a bit more man- ageable this fall. Her tips are: * Back-to-school shopping: Every school re- quires certain school supplies and most kids love the process of choosing the perfect new backpack or lunchbox. Some online sites, like Bing.com
, offer comparison shopping tools that make it easy for you to find everything you need at a great price and get it shipped to your house, beating the crowds. * Pantry stock-up: Before the school year gets underway be sure to stock up on all of the es- sential pantry staples (snacks, desserts, PB&J, etc.) so you will be prepared to pack a great lunch at a moment’s notice. Having well-stocked cupboards will help streamline your morning routine and by planning ahead you will be able to get the best prices on all your goods. * Centralize the essentials: Don’t let things get lost in the shuffle. Turn your home’s coat closet or
mud room into a school prep station so everyone knows where to find lunch boxes, backpacks, coats, etc., so when the morning rush to eat, dress and brush teeth has the household frenzied you can still make it out the door on time with every- thing you need for the day in hand. Check out www.bing.com/images
to view some great design ideas. * Avoid the jam: If you run late, your kids run late. Before you leave to take your child to school or to after school activities like sports, music or dance classes, use mapping and traffic applica- tions to find the best route to avoid traffic, so your kids aren’t stressing out about missing anything important from the things they enjoy. * The back-up plan: Even the most prepared parent hits a snag once in a while. Realizing half-way to school the lunch box is on the kitchen counter or the gym shoes are at a friend’s house can ruin a child’s day. A handy mobile applica- tion for making mid-route stops is www.bi
ng. com/maps. This application allows you to use your phone to easily find the closest grocery or dis- count chain to pick up what you need in a hurry and keep you from missing your 9 a.m. meeting at work.

As kids head back to school, parents are faced with the dilemma of finding foods to pack for lunch and snacks that kids want to eat and that are good for them. Most snacks available in the grocery stores are full of fat, sugar and/or salt with little nutritional benefit, so finding healthy choices that kids are willing to eat isn’t always an easy task. Luckily, many food and beverage manufacturers are beginning to make this task a little bit easier by adding ingredients with a variety of health benefits to many foods popular with kids. These ingredients are often called functional ingredients. Most kids know what they like when it comes to food choices, so the most success- ful functional ingredients are those that add nutritional benefits without changing the taste, texture or quality of the food. One issue being addressed with functional ingredients is bone
health. While many parents may think of bone health as an issue for older adults, taking care of kids’ bones while they are young can help prevent problems like osteoporosis later in life. This is par- ticularly important during the preteen and teen years, when bones are growing fastest. By the time teens finish their growth spurts around age 17, 90 percent of their adult bone mass is established, according to the National Institutes of Health.

while milk is an obvious choice when it comes to calcium, not all kids like milk. And some are lactose intolerant. Food and beverage manufacturers are making the job of choosing calcium-rich foods easier by adding certain calcium-rich functional ingredients to food products that are already popular with kids. One such functional ingredient that has been getting a lot of at- tention recently is calcified minerals. The main benefit of calcified minerals is their ability to enrich calcium content to enable food manufacturers to make claims like “good source of calcium” and “excellent source of calcium.” Aquamin(R) calcified mineral source, which is offered by GTC Nutrition, a leading provider of functional ingredient solutions, is one calcified mineral source being added to foods and beverages to enrich calcium content. Unlike dairy-based sources of calcium, Aquamin is harvested from a particular type of red seaweed found in the North Atlantic Ocean, which picks up multiple minerals from the local clean sea water. As a result of this process, Aquamin is a composite of more than 70 minerals, with calcium and magnesium being the two most predominant minerals present. Additionally, the ingredient has a variety of other minerals including magnesium, boron, copper, fluoride, iron, manga- nese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc, that are potentially beneficial for bone health, according to The National Insti- tutes of Health. To learn more about Aquamin, visit www.gt
p. “Calcified minerals are a great alternative source of calcium, particularly for kids who don’t like or can’t tolerate dairy,” says Dr. Anne Birkett, nutrition science manager with GTC Nutrition. “Parents look- ing for products fortified with Aquamin or other calcified mineral sources should look for magnesium, calcium carbonate or magnesium carbonate on ingredient labels.” In addition to packing

lunches and snacks rich in calcium, Dr. Birkett offers these three simple tips for parents when they choose lunch foods and snacks for their kids: * Always try and include at least one fresh fruit and veg- etable when packing lunches. The USDA recommends 2 1/2 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit each day. To help ensure fruits and vegetables you pack actually get eaten, try and rotate between your kids’ favorites. * When it comes to breads and other grain products, try and include as many whole grains as possible. Whole grains have been shown to have a va- riety of health benefits, includ- ing reducing the risk of heart disease.
* Mix it up. Kids can get bored if they are packed the same thing every day. Experi- menting with different healthy food options is a great way to help your kids figure out what they do and don’t like and en- courages them to have an open mind when trying new foods.
