Let’s make this year a Healthy one too.
A few things that need attention:
I am still waiting for a few kindergarten, 1st grade & 7 grade Immunization records. An email was sent to those who need to follow up.
Please send your child to school with a snack and a lunch. If you order hot lunch, your child still needs bring a healthy snack. The time between breakfast and lunch is too long for most people to go without a snack. Snacks are necessary to stay be productive and happy.
In the first family envelope of 2013, we included “Making Meals Matter” booklet. We know that most families here at St. Rita know about healthy eating habits. This booklet is reminder to get back to basics and a really great tool to help our children make healthy choices. I had my children read through this and pick some new healthy choices to add to our menus of the week. I was really surprised when both my children picked a couple foods that I was unaware they liked. Having meal times with friends and neighbors really broadens their palate.
I would love to hear about your healthy snacks and meal ideas, please send them to me via email. Meal time is crazy, this can help us all! I will post the best to help out the rest!
