What should be in your child's lunch?

Posted: Updated:

Experts say proper nutrition can make a difference in how well your child may feel to how well they pay attention. Renee Griffin, the Child Nutrition Director of Ohio County Schools says, lean sources of protein like turkey, chicken breast and whole grain bread that's high in fiber are vital.

Griffin also suggests that your child consume plenty of fruits and vegetables, which will help people feel a lot fuller because of the fiber. She adds that an unbalanced diet can lead a students blood sugar to rise and fall and causes them to feel groggy and sluggish.

"By providing healthy proteins, higher fiber fruits and vegetables and complex carbohydrates, you're going to prevent that spike in blood sugar and be ready to learn."
