With kids returning to school, we thought it would be a perfect time to ask Kara Gann, a Clinical Dietitian at Children's Health, for some back-to-school nutrition tips. Eating breakfast is the best way to start the day, for children and adults alike. To encourage your kids to fuel up before school, sit down and eat with them. The act of eating breakfast together models that breakfast is important. If a rushed morning routine keeps you from sitting down for breakfast, set aside 10 to 15 extra minutes to eat. Wake up just a little bit earlier if needed.
