August: It’s that time again…time to start stocking up on healthy back to school staples! Whole grains, protein, and fruits or veggies are a must for breakfast and lunch.

  • Try Greek yogurt topped with fruit and granola!
  • Whole grain cereal, such as cheerios, with a banana and low-fat milk.
  • Scrambled eggs with veggies on a slice of whole wheat toast!
  • Celery sticks, carrots, and bell pepper slices with low-fat dressing or even peanut butter are easy vegetables to store in a lunch box.
  • What about 2oz of cheese with grapes and whole-grain crackers?
  • Low-sodium turkey and vegetable wrap using a 100% whole-wheat tortilla!
  • Peanut butter and apple sandwich on whole wheat bread. YUM!
  • Or top a salad with fresh berries or dried fruit and a hardboiled egg or chicken breast!
