I cannot believe I’m about to utter these words…
Right around the corner, it will be “Back to School” time!
Ack! Didn’t I just finish with school, for cryin’ out loud?!
Don’t worry, I’m not actually going to talk about Back to School yet… but, I do have some things coming up on the calendar to help you make the upcoming school year a healthier one.
One of those things on the to-do list is a revised and updated “Healthy School Days Menu & Nutrition Guide” that will do an even better job of meeting the particular needs of those with food sensitivity issues and autoimmune conditions. That should be ready in August.
In the meantime, I’ve got a small stack of my original Healthy School Days Menus sitting here that would like to be adopted!
Don’t know about the “menu”?
I created it in response to the nutritional myths (and lies) my eldest child faced when she first attended school years ago. For the sake of my own sanity, and to preserve my relationship with my daughter (and not always be the nutritional “bad guy”), I created an 8-page nutritional guide that literally sat on our kitchen counter for our children to refer to when making their food choices on a daily basis.
It solved a LOT of problems at meal time and snack time!
The Healthy School Days Menu builds a solid foundation of nutritional know-how from a very young age… when ideas and opinions about food are being formed.
I originally called it a “menu” for simplicity’s sake with my own young ‘uns… but, in reality, it’s much more of a “Nutrition 101″ guide.
Here’s what some folks have had to say about The Healthy School Days Menu:
“Wow! This menu is wonderful! It is very well organized, gives lots of choices to pick from, and most importantly, it teaches me how to feed my family more nutritiously!
I like the Golden Rules of Nutrition part because it gives me guidance in the pure choices I can make in a day, and it’s easy to remember when organized this way. I also think it’s really important that you identified all the toxins we put in our bodies. We can’t change to become healthier if we don’t understand the “insufficient” choices we’re making.
And, of course, your funny, caring, energetic, and intelligent voice shines all the way through, concluding with “Dr. Mom’s Kitchen Agreements”! Very clever!” S. T.
(No, I did NOT bribe this person into writing that last paragraph!)
“It is great to see a menu that focuses on what we need and the positive effects it can have on our daily energy and lifetime health. Dr. Mom Online has laid out what we need to fuel our bodies, and how we can teach our kids to make better choices when it counts. I believe that most of us do not know what health really means, or how to go about achieving it.
Dr. Mom Online presents a wonderful menu for each part of the day, as well as snack times, allowing us to be the voice of health, rather than the TV, the internet, and the many other forms of media that are influencing us and our kids on a daily basis.
This menu could have such an impact, not only on our kids, but on the generations that follow, and the behaviors and legacy we (and our kids) will leave.
As a teacher, I’m excited to see a menu that schools could adopt, which would have a powerful impact on the ever-increasing problem of obesity in childhood and adolescent populations.
Thanks, Dr. Mom! I look forward to seeing your work show up in schools and homes across the country!”
“Not only does Dr. Mom Online ROCK and know her nutrition, she also knows how to make every child and adult want to eat healthy with her “Healthy School Days Menu”. Her explanations and reasons are written in an awesome, cheerful, and easy to understand manner. Dr. Mom Online’s “Healthy School Days Menu” is fantastic!
H.O. and P.O.
Although this menu was originally intended for childhood nutrition, I’ve found these principles are universal and apply easily into my lifestyle, too! (And I’m much older than a child!)
Dr. Mom Online gets down to the basics of healthy eating for any age!”
Pretty neat stuff, eh?
The Healthy School Days Menu has been a popular addition to households and classrooms for awhile now. In case you haven’t yet ordered one for yourself, or for grandma & grandpa to refer to when the kids visit, or for your kids’ teachers and coaches… now’s a great time!
The Healthy School Days Menu is ON SALE!
For as long as my supplies last, you can get your own menu/nutrition guide for only $10, plus shipping & handling.
(The menu was $29 originally, then $20… so you’re getting a sweet deal!)
Just send me a message directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or http://Facebook.com/DrMomOnline and let me know how many menus you’d like to order and we’ll go from there!
