Back to School Health



Fall is in the air, and school is starting back! Whether you are in public or private school, homeschooled, or in college, everyone needs some healthy eating tips to make their brain function at its best! 

Health Tips for Homeschoolers 

  • Eat a healthy breakfast (a smoothie, oatmeal and fruit, or yogurt, fruit and granola).
  • Eat a healthy lunch (hummus dip and vegetables, a big salad with grilled chicken and fruit, or a healthy sandwich).
  • If you get hungry in between mealtimes, eat a healthy snack (raw fruits and vegetables, dried unsweetened fruit, nuts and/or seeds, yogurt, or a smoothie).
  • Avoid anything made with white sugar or white flour.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Health Tips for School and College Students

  • Eat a healthy breakfast (a smoothie; oatmeal and fruit; or yogurt, fruit and granola).
  • If possible, pack your own lunch. A healthy lunch might consist of a salad with grilled chicken and fruit, a healthy sandwich and fruit, or hummus dip and vegetables.
  • If eating in a cafeteria, try to eat salads and lots of raw fruits and vegetables. Avoid breads and sweets.
  • Bring plenty of snacks (raw fruits and vegetables, dried unsweetened fruit, nuts and/or seeds, or yogurt) to avoid buying a junky snack from the snack machine.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Always remember that eating healthy at home or away is easy and simple if you plan accordingly. Have fun going back to school!
