In their Keeping Kids Healthy column, UTMB Drs. Sally Robinson and Keith Bly wrote that the American Academy of Pediatrics recently sent pediatricians information about school lunches. “While neatly compartmentalized, prepackaged foods found in grocery stores may make packing a child’s lunch fast and easy … these convenience products could help contribute to childhood obesity. It’s important to make sure your children are getting nutritious lunches instead of refined and processed foods like chips, cookies and roll ups. … Consider asking your child to choose between two healthy snacks, which gives them some choice while you, the parent, remain in control.”
