As kids head back to school, Irene Preklet of 680 News wants to know, “Since parents struggle with what to feed their kids for lunch, what are key tips for healthy snacks and foods for children?” Dr. Kantor believes that parents need to know that proper nutrition affects not only their children’s health, but also how they do in school. If they don’t have a balanced diet, it will affect their learning ability and concentration. Artificial dyes, preservatives and sweeteners, often found in children’s lunches and snacks, can lead to hyperactivy and lower attention span. Dr. Kantor’s top tips for proper nutrition are to ditch the juices and drink more water, and be sure that every lunch has four components in it; protein, fruit, veggies and healthy fat. Listen in on this quick interview for complete, balanced lunch ideas.
