t’s almost time for back-to-school. Packing the kids’ lunches for school means you have control over which foods they are eating. Parents can manage nutritious meals even when the kids are at school. According to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, founded with the American Heart Association, American kids consume 35-50 percent of their daily calories while in school. So, healthy lunches can have a big impact on children’s health through good nutrition. Today, about one in three American kids and teens are overweight or obese, nearly triple the rate in 1963. Among children today, obesity is causing a broad range of health problems that previously weren’t seen until adulthood. These include high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and elevated blood cholesterol levels. Nutrition can go a long way toward preventing these illnesses in children. Here are some budget-friendly, creative ideas from the American Heart Association to help keep kids happy and healthy at lunchtime:

Make A Smarter Sandwich

While some kids prefer the same thing every day, many kids want variety in their lunches. Sandwiches are easy, portable and kid-friendly. • Use different breads like 100 percent whole-wheat tortilla wraps

173607B

BACK TO SCHOOL • AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 5, 2017

Pack Healthy Lunches BY JESSICA DIMEO specialsections@antonmediagroup.com

(choose wraps low in saturated fat and made with no hydrogenated oils) or 100 percent whole-wheat pita pockets. • In addition to lettuce and tomato, try shredded carrot or zucchini and sliced cucumbers, peppers, or apple or pear with a turkey sandwich. • Try avocado or hummus as a swap for cheese or mayo. • Try a leftover grilled chicken in your sandwich as a healthy swap for lunch meat.

Love Those Leftovers

Think about using the leftovers from a family favorite dinner for a next day lunch. Use a thermos to keep foods hot or cold until the lunch

bell rings. The prepared/packaged versions of these foods sometimes have a lot of sodium, so make them homemade with little or no salt, or compare nutrition facts of similar products and choose the ones with less sodium. • Soup—tomato, vegetable or bean • Chili (vegetarian or made with lean or extra lean ground chicken) • Spaghetti or curly pasta salad (whole wheat with veggies and chicken added) • Bean casserole or beans & rice with vegetables.

Let Them Dunk

Sometimes it’s OK to let your kids

3B play with their food, especially when they are getting extra nutrition. Try packing one of these fun dunks with dippers: • Apple and pear slices to dip into low-fat plain yogurt or peanut butter. Cortland, Empire and Ginger Gold apples brown at a slower rate than other apples. • Carrot, celery and sweet pepper strips to dip into hummus, fresh salsa or homemade bean dip. • Whole-grain, low-sodium, low-fat crackers or slices of grilled tofu (a soybean product) to dunk into soup. Avoid packing sugary drinks like “power” drinks, soda, or sugar-added juices to your kids’ lunchboxes, or home meals. Water or school purchased milk are great options to reduce sugar in the diet. Let the crunchy snacks be fruit or cut veggies, not fried, fatty chips. Get Them Involved When kids help pack their lunches, they’re more likely to eat that lunch! On nights you have a bit more time, like a Sunday night, have them choose which piece of fruit or what type of whole grain bread they want and let them assemble their lunch. Make this a weekly routine – it’s another great way to spend family time together. —Jessica DiMeo is the senior regional director of communications at the American Heart Association.

Children And Biting

or infants and toddlers, biting may be a form of exploration as they learn about the world through the senses. Children may not have the language to express their feelings and may bite to communicate their frustrations or needs. They may bite when they feel overstimulated, excited, or to obtain attention. They may bite when bored, when responding to changes and transitions, to relieve discomfort from teething, or to experiment with cause and effect. It is less common for preschoolers to bite, but it may occur as children continue to develop impulse control. It may be a way for preschoolers to communicate if they do not yet have the skills to express their feelings and needs. Biting could be the result of sensory needs. It may also be a way to feel powerful and in control of social situations.

Say No

In a calm, yet firm tone, say: “No biting. Biting hurts.” Follow up with: “I can’t let you hurt Johnny” or “Look at Johnny; he is crying because you bit him, and it hurts.” Keep it short and simple.

Console The Victim

Focus most of your attention on the person

PARENTING MATTERS Graziella Simonetti who is bitten. Soothing this child helps by not reinforcing the behavior through negative attention while at the same time, modeling empathy. Having the biter help comfort and assist in the first aid process is appropriate if both the victim and biter are open to it, and if an adult is available to monitor. Sometimes, it is important to remove the biter from the situation immediately. If your Teach Communication child is

capable of understanding, review alternative strategies. Say: “Mary took your toy. You felt angry. Next time, ask for it back. If she does not, find a grown up to help you.” Reinforce the no biting rule. Help your child learn how to label and express feelings. Tell her “you are really angry! Do you want to

Sensory Support

If your child bites when overstimulated, manage the environment when possible. Have the television or the radio at lower volume and be mindful of big crowds and loud noises. Create a space in your home with soft items and calming activities to which your child can go when overstimulated or upset. Offer your child a firm hug when overwhelmed. If she has a need for oral input, offer healthy and crunchy snacks throughout the day. Distraction Preventing can be a useful Biting

tool as it shifts attention and reduces tension. If you know your child’s trigger, coach her through the situation. “It looks like Bobby is close to your body and you don’t like that. Tell him you need some space.” Practice sharing during

low-tension times. Use a timer to take turns. Consider going to your local library to request books about biting. Being tired or hungry can increase irritability which can lead to low frustration tolerance and the act of biting. Stay close to your child when he may be prone to bite. Staying close helps him feel secure and makes you more available to intervene. Biting typically stops around 3½-4 years of age as children gain self-control and an increased ability to problem solve. If your child continues to bite or the behavior worsens, you may want to consider speaking to your child’s doctor.

BACK TO SCHOOL • AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 5, 2017

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance reminded students and parents of the back-toschool tax breaks on purchases of certain clothing and footwear and course textbooks for college students. “It pays to keep this year-round tax break in mind, especially when making back-to-school shopping plans,” said Acting Commissioner Nonie Manion. “The savings on purchases of clothing, footwear, and college textbooks can really add up.”

College textbooks

Tax-Free Shopping

Course textbooks—when fulltime or part-time college students purchase them—are also exempt from New York State and local sales and use taxes throughout the year. Students can make qualifying purchases from any bookstore (including college or university bookstores), by mail order, or over the Internet. If sales tax is erroneously charged, students can file state form AU-11 to receive a sales tax refund on the purchase.

Sales tax exemption on clothing and footwear

In New York State, qualifying clothing and footwear purchases are exempt from state sales tax yearround. Many states offer “sales tax

WE W O ARE N ETELY L P M CO GANIC! OR

Clothing, footwear and textbooks are part of the tax breaks... not pets! holidays” leading up to the school year, but in New York State, clothing and footwear are always exempt from the state’s 4 percent sales tax when they are sold for less than $110.

Kiddie Academy Prepares Your Child for School and Life with Our Life Essentials® Curriculum.

Clothing and footwear items sold for less than $110 are also exempt from local sales tax year-round in New York City. In 2017, the state exemption

alone is expected to save New York shoppers more than $900 million. Savings from the combined state and local sales tax exemptions are about $1.3 billion annually.
