Health Tip of the Week, sponsored by Baton Rouge General: Back-to-school breakfast and lunchbox ideas

    Kristen West, Registered Dietitian

    Ready or not, it’s back to school time. As a mom of two little ones, I get the weekday time crunch. But as a dietitian, I want you to know how important it is for your children to stick to a healthy diet, especially during the school year. Eating right improves mood, boosts energy and promotes focus—the perfect ingredients for a great day at school. I hope these breakfast, lunch and snack ideas help ease you back in to the school year.

    Monday

    Fruit with scrambled eggs and breakfast sausage
