Dust off those backpacks because it’s already September, which means the kids are heading back to the classroom. It’s a pretty busy time so don’t let the hustle and bustle of back to school derail your family’s healthy habits. Check out these tips to keep building healthy habits as a family this fall.
- Plan ahead for afterschool snacks. At the beginning of the week, put some fruits and veggies like carrot sticks, blueberries and apples into portion sized bags for an easy grab and go after school snack for the kids.
- Keep your freezer stocked with frozen vegetables—a dinner timesaver for those early fall evenings when you let the kids stay at the park or soccer practice a little late for some extra running around.
- Plan family activity time. Make sure you don’t lose family activity time with all the school responsibilities and plan after-dinner walks while the sun is still out and the weather is nice.
