Back to School – Eating Done Right!
August 1, 2017
Back to school time can be chaotic – school shopping, getting mentally prepared to enter a new, more advanced grade level, possibly moving to a new school entirely. Parents readying themselves for their kids to get back in the groove and not be at home during the day time as they are during summer and even getting ready to let go and experience an empty nest as their recent graduates move out onto their own and begin their adventures at college.
Change, although the only constant in life, is stressful.
One of the best ways to support your body during times of stress is with proper nutrition.
When your body is fed all the vitamins and nutrients it needs to run at full steam, it is actually easier to handle change related stressors in your life.
Don’t leave your child’s nutritional needs to chance.
School meals, though state regulated, tend to lack substance. Brown bagging lunch is the best answer. When you control your food – you control your health. It is because of this need that we have put together our new Lunch Box Meal Plan.
What is the Lunch Box Plan?
This is the one stop shop for school lunch at its healthiest. No need to shop, plan, or pack. Just order, pick up and you are good to grab and go all week!
The Lunch Box Plan allows you to select from a long list of proteins, carbs and veggies. If you like that food, great! Check it off! If not – leave it blank and you will never see it included in your customized meals. This is wonderful if you have food sensitivities or allergies.
A small one meal travel cooler lunch box is perfect for a day at school, keeping their meal fresh and refrigerated. PackIt has come out with freezable bags that work far better than the normal lunch box to keep your food fresh. https://www.packit.com/. They come in an assortment of fun colors and designs to keep your kids happy as well.
Great for Elementary, High School and College!
Are you college age and living in a dorm? Chances are you do not have a place to cook. If you are lucky, you may have a mini fridge. Making lunches and budgeting can be a challenge away at school. It is vital to your own wellbeing to keep the healthy lifestyle going even while adjusting to your new found freedom and being out on your own.
Many turn to the cheapest food sources: Raman noodles, coffee, cereal, bread and so on. They may be cheap, but you will likely pay for those choices in other ways. The “freshman 15” is well and alive in today’s newly arriving scholars. It is easy to fall into the trap of late night pizza, beer, and other snacks – gaining 15+ lbs. your first year is not ideal. Nor does it need to happen. Stocking up weekly on grab and go healthy meals from Superfitfoods.co can be your saving grace. Customizable portions and order options let you set not only your goals but fit your budget as well.
This school year – save yourself time, money, aggravation and be guaranteed that your nutrition is on point every single day. We look forward to creating a healthier lifestyle for you, one meal at a time. To learn more about the Lunch Box program as well as all of our other plans we invite you to visit www.superfitfoods.co.
