The 10 Best Back-to-School Foods to Give Kids a Boost
As children head back to school, it is important to arm them not only with the newest backpacks and pencils, but also with a nutritious diet. While the lure of fast food and quick meals can be enticing, fueling kids with healthy foods and a well- rounded diet can be easier than parents think. “A new school year provides a great opportunity for parents to teach their kids how to make nutritious choices throughout the day,” says Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatri- cian and author of “Feeding Baby Green.” “Whether starting the day off with organic milk or packing school lunches with lots of fruits and veggies, making a conscious choice to focus on nutrition as kids return to the classroom can start with a few simple choices at the grocery store.” To help parents get their children off to a nutritious start this school year, Horizon, the leading milk brand in the U.S., has partnered with Dr. Greene to develop the following list of the 10 best back to school foods:
The back-to-school top 10: 1. Organic milk With some studies indicating that only one in 10 girls and one in four boys meet their calcium needs, it’s important to keep calcium-rich foods front and center in kids’ diets. Organic milk, which is pro- duced without the use of antibiotics, toxic synthetic pesticides or artificial growth hormones, is a great choice for lunchboxes and breakfast time. Horizon makes con- venient single serve milk boxes that pack perfectly into lunchboxes and provide a nutrient-rich alternative to juice drinks and other nutrient-poor beverages. In addition, Horizon organic milk with DHA omega-3 is a good choice for breakfast beverages or paired with low-sugar, whole grain cereals. DHA omega-3 has been shown to support brain, heart and eye health.
2. Whole grain bread The new U.S. Dietary Guidelines recom- mend that at least half of our grains be whole grains, so choosing whole grains for lunchbox sandwiches and wraps is a smart strategy to boost fiber and other impor- tant nutrients. One good choice is Rudi’s Organic Bakery’s 14 Grain bread. With just three slices you get the daily recom- mended allowance of whole grains.
3. String cheese
Cheese is a good source of calcium and protein. If your child isn’t a meat-eater, cheese is another high-protein option for
lunches and snack time. String cheese is a great way to help your kids play with their food by pulling apart the cheese - and they will love munching on it too. Horizon has a variety of cheeses that are great for snacking. Mozzarella String Cheese and Colby Cheese Sticks are both kid-approved favorites.
4. Trail mix fixings A variety of dried fruits (cher- ries, cranberries, raisins, dates), nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, pistachios) and cereal (look for those high in fiber and low in sugar) can combine into one hearty snack for on-the-go kids. Plus, you can make an activity out of letting your kids create their very own one-of-a- kind mix.
5. Nut butter Peanut butter, almond butter, hazelnut butter - they’re all great for lunchtime sandwiches or on toast for an after-school snack.
6. Hummus This protein-packed spread comes in a wide variety of flavors and even in single-serve packs for kids on the go. You can try it as a dip for veggies and whole- grain crackers or as a spread on wraps and sandwiches as a nutritious alternative to mayonnaise or dressing.
7. Granola bars Granola bars can be a lower-sugar,

8. Turkey breast Turkey breast is low in fat and high in protein, and it can be a crowd pleaser in the lunchroom. You can also get creative with turkey as part of after-school snacks - think turkey and cheese roll-ups.
9. Fruit, fruit, fruit Apples, cherries, bananas, oranges,
grapes - fruits are an important part of a well-balanced diet. Try and vary what you offer. Different fruits provide differ- ent nutrients. When looking for organic fruit options, check out Earthbound Farm, which offers a number of organic fruit products nationwide, ranging from apple slices to strawberries to grapes, citrus and blueberries.
10. Veggies, veggies, veggies Veggies like carrot sticks, celery, cucum- bers, pea pods and cherry tomatoes are all great for lunchboxes and after-school snacks. Remember, the darker the veggie, the more nutritious it tends to be. To spice veggies up, you can think about serving them with a low fat salad dressing or hum- mus as a dip. In addition to organic fruit, Earthbound Farm also offers a full range of organic veggie products.
