Back to School Countdown #1: Happy Happy Food!

I was sitting at my desk, deeply involved in the blog topic choosing process and viola! the idea came to me in the form of my stomach making those little noises of discomfort.

I shall talk about the important topic of nutrition!

Nah, i'll let someone else talk about how important nutrition is...you know how proper nutrition in children is essential to their mental and physical development and how children ages 2 to 3 years old you need to keep the total fat intake between 30 to 35 percent of calories per day and for children and adolescents age 4 to 18 years......i'm tired just thinking about it all!!!!

Instead lets think about three things:

1. Water
2. Color
3. Fun

Make sure your child is drinking lots of water! Make sure your child is eating a lot of varied color in each meal. Make sure food is equated with fun!

Another fun item for school: the Ultimate Anti-Theft Lunch Bag!! If your child is suffering from always having his lunch confiscated by other children at school, consider the following:
