acking your kids’ lunches every day is extra insurance that they’ll get the nourishment they need to do their best in school. Here are some ideas for creating nutritious and enticing lunches.

cially for school-age kids. “Children who don’t eat a morning meal don’t learn or remember as well as kids who do have breakfast,” he says. “They also tend to overeat later in the day.”
Pick plenty of produce - Growing bodies need the nutrients from several servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Cut produce into small, finger-sized pieces and add a low-fat dressing or nonfat yogurt dipping.
Get creative - Think in terms of food categories: protein, dairy and fruits or vegetables. Try low-fat granola and strawberry yogurt or cherry tomatoes with hummus.
Pack in protein -
Nuts, seeds, hard-boiled eggs and beans are also
tasty, heart-healthy choices.
Buy more than bread - Try interesting alternatives: whole-grain english muffins, crackers, pitas or bagels, or flavored tortillas or wraps.
Don’t skimp on dairy - Help kids get calcium and vitamin D.

HEALTHY HAIR... BOYS & GIRLS CLUB... HEALTHY HAIR Back to school hair care
ack to school hair care is a concern for many families. Making sure your child is happy and
well adjusted is a top priority! The last thing any parent wants to worry about is tangled locks or even worse, hair lice. Here are a couple of ways to keep kid’s hair untangled and lice free. First, make sure kids have their hair cut regularly to eliminate damaged hair and split ends. Second, use appropriate hair products offering the best defense. There are many different hair products on the market for you to choose from. We recently found the ‘Circle of Friends’ product line at Jack n Jillybeans Hair Salon Salon.. We love this product line, which is specifically targeted for kids. Circle of Friends offers many different shampoos, conditioners and detanglers in yummy scents! Plus, Circle of Friends offers a complete product line for “lice defense” including a shampoo, leave-in conditioner, styling gel and hairspray. Our kids love Jack n Jillybeans Hair Salon in Roseville, a kid-friendly salon “specializing in children’s hair”. At Jack n Jillybeans, Jillybeans, you will find movies at every station, video games, and even a train table in the play area. Wendy & Ali, Active Kidd Publishers

ID U KNOW?
……there is evidence that a child engaged in sports is more likely to have increased selfesteem and academic performance? Being involved in sports also decreases the likelihood of drug use and disease. Research shows that kids that play sports have advanced social skills and do better in school overall. …….playing outdoors promotes spiritual, moral and character development in children? An outdoor playground offers a social network for children to enhance relationship-building skills. Group playing teaches kids self-control, negotiating and compromise. Playing helps develop language and reasoning skills. So let’s get our kids outside where they can play, learn and grow!

DENTISTS... BEWARE OF Cavities this Halloween By Kasi Franck, DDS
alloween is an exciting time for children. They love dressing up in costumes, trick-or-treating and getting a large supply of goodies all in one night. However, beware of cavities! Halloween candy and any sticky, sugary food and drinks can easily promote tooth decay. Halloween treats don’t have to be sticky, hard or gooey candy to be fun. Instead fill them up with healthy alternatives such as pretzels, granola bars or sugar free gum. Or pass out non-food treats such as pencils, stickers or small toys.
