Expert Advice: Is It Time To Rethink Your Kids’ Nutritional Needs?
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 kids nutrition. Good nutrition and learning go hand-in-hand, because a healthy breakfast and lunch provide your child with the fuel they need 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. She recently joined me to discuss how to know when it is time to rethink kids nutritional needs. She also gave tips for staying up-to-par with your kids nutrition needs and overall health during the school year.
