Head Start To Good Health for Kids

 

·       Preparing healthy foods for children to eat at school will better equip them for study and learning.  Variety is important: fruits and vegetables add color and crunch plus provide beneficial vitamins and minerals.  Foods like wraps, smoothies ad dips are fun to eat!

 

·       Share the grocery shopping experience with the kids by encouraging them to choose healthy snacks, increasing the likelihood that they will eat these rather than choosing less healthy foods.

 

·       When eating out, be a role model and teach kids to make balanced choices.  Add a green salad to your order and request low-fat dressing or light dressing.  Choose mustard instead of mayonnaise or opt for stir-fried or steamed rather than fried.

 

·       To ensure that children are getting plenty of calcium, add low-fat cottage cheese to meals and snacks:  create a mini pizza topped with part-skim mozzarella or serve reduced-fat string cheese for a healthy snack.

 

·       Working alongside kids in the kitchen, messes, spills and accidents can happen!  For general cleaning and effective stain removal on everything from clothes to carpets, use OxiClean® powerful cleaners that won’t compromise the health of the home or the environment.
