4 Your Health: Back to school meals

As summer comes to a close for Tucson kids, health experts have some recommendations for your children’s back to school meals.

Dietitians with the Baylor College of Medicine say your child’s breakfast should always include protein.

Eggs are a great choice because you can incorporate vegetables or a tortilla, which adds more fiber.

For a quick meal, try yogurt with granola or a fresh fruit smoothie. Both have lots of nutrients and will keep kids full.

Protein is also important when it comes to packing lunches.
