School is just around the corner for most moms and so that means packing daily lunches is too. What do we pack that is healthy for our kiddos? Why do kids need healthy lunches?
Join me in a great interview that I recently had with Jessica Fishman Levinson, MS, RDN, CDN who answered some of these important questions and added other great lunch packing suggestions including:
• Meal planning tips and back-to-school sandwich recipes for parents looking to give lunchtime a flavorful twist with easy-to-pack, protein-rich options kids will love
• How to shop and eat smart by selecting heart-healthy foods that meet the criteria for the American Heart Association’s heart check mark
• The importance of adding extra lean protein to your kids diet along with tips for how to achieve your family’s healthy eating goals without sacrificing taste
