The new school year is upon us and that means rethinking kids’ nutritional needs.
LTG is pleased to being speaking with Dr. Tanya Remer Altmann who is sharing her tips on easier school mornings and how to give your kids the nutrition they need so they can be prepared for whatever the new year brings.
Millions of children and teens are heading back to school. While most parents plan ahead for clothes, school supplies and books, the new school year is also an opportunity to rethink and reenergize childrens’ nutrition. Good nutrition and learning go hand-in-hand, because a healthy breakfast and lunch provide your child with the fuel s/he needs to stay focused throughout the day.
Protein at every meal, especially breakfast, is essential to help fuel children for all activities throughout the day. In fact, protein at breakfast can help keep kids feel fuller longer so they can make the most of their morning. Packed with nine essential nutrients, including protein, in each glass, milk is a delicious, easy and affordable way to give your kids protein plus other nutrients they need. In fact, an 8-ounce glass of milk has 8 grams of high-quality protein.
Working mom and pediatrician, Dr. Tanya Altmann, knows it can be hard for kids to get nutrients they need to grow up strong without milk. Many kids are even falling short on important nutrients including calcium, vitamin D and potassium that milk is rich in.
