August is officially here which means summer is coming to an end and the back-to-school madness is right around the corner. It’s back to the lunch-packing grind for parents; many may be wondering what’s new in healthy options for their children?

It’s an important question, as each lunch offers an opportunity to improve your child’s diet. These choices can make a big difference toward the daily and weekly totals of calories, fat, saturated fat, fiber, sugar, and sodium your child consumes.

How your child eats today will have a large impact on their health throughout childhood as well as adulthood. Consuming nutritious food helps children and teens develop, grow, do well academically, and feel good about themselves. Child and teen eating disorders, obesity, dental cavities and iron-deficiency anemia can be prevented with good nutrition. 

Twenty-five percent of all children between the ages of 2 and 18 years old are overweight according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Children who are overweight and obese have a greater risk of developing major health issues such as; high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, joint pain, and heart disease. We need to teach our children good nutrition habits to decrease the likelihood of them becoming overweight. Helping your child choose nutrient-dense foods over empty-calorie foods, such as cookies and sodas, can help prevent childhood obesity, and provide your child with a higher quality of life.

Parents must find a balance between packing healthy lunches and lunches their children will actually eat. Getting your child involved in preparing, choosing and packing his own lunch will make him more likely to eat it–so it’s great to let him lend a helping hand. CarbEssentials offers lots of healthy alternatives to the usual snacks you might be packing in your kids’ lunch.
