Back to School, Back to Mealtime!

By: Jacqueline Gomes, RDN, MBA  

A new schedule calls for new mealtimes. As many of us will be taking our meals “to-go”, it’s important to pack healthy take along food rich in protein and other nutrients to keep us satisfied throughout the day.


Here are 5 Tips to get you started!

  1. Chobani Greek Yogurt contains double the protein of regular or traditional yogurt.
  2. Protein is important for active lifestyles, helping with muscle development, and contributing a feeling of fullness between meals.
  3. Probiotics found in yogurt may increase immune system response and reduce the severity of respiratory illnesses – perfect for school aged kids!
  4. Getting your kids involved in selecting lunches and snacks will help increase consumption! Plan a visit to the grocery store to make healthy choices together.
  5. Don’t forget to make time for family meals. Regular family meals are linked to the kinds of outcomes that we all want for our children: higher grades and self-esteem, healthier eating habits and less risky behavior.
