It’s that time of year again! Morning routines are in full swing, including packing lunches (props to anyone who does it the night before!).
The BIG 3 Questions:
While lunch can often be an afterthought for you, it’s a big deal for kids. It’s totally normal for kids to compare what they have to everyone else. Sure, you can’t control what their friends eat for lunch, BUT you can compete with “food envy.”
Another way to combat food envy for unhealthy lunch boxes, is to talk about it with your kids. Explain why cookies, crackers, gummy bears, white bread sandwiches and etc. aren’t good for their bodies or their brains. Teach them about the benefits of organic apple slices with almond butter, organic quinoa with grilled organic chicken and organic Kids MVP brownies. Maybe instead of your child saying “it’s not fair” or “that’s what everyone else has,” they will share your ideas with their friends at lunch and make good choices on their own!
