607 595 AIDP

Back-to-school is an exciting time for kids and parents.  There is a flurry of activities – shopping for supplies, organizing schedules, and preparing lunches.  Setting up a child for success should include a good nutritional routine.  A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats provides the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients necessary for growth, development, and overall well-being. It’s recommended to consult a healthcare professional or registered dietitian to ensure your child’s diet is meeting their specific needs. 

Here are some helpful tips that may benefit children.    

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays a crucial role in bone health and immune function. Children who don’t get enough sunlight or have limited dietary sources of vitamin D might benefit from a supplement. Consult a healthcare provider to determine if supplementation is necessary.

Easy to digest proteins

Proteins are essential for building and repairing tissues, supporting immune function, and providing energy. For children, especially during the demanding school year, easily digestible proteins can be particularly beneficial. They are less likely to cause discomfort or sluggishness and are readily absorbed by young bodies.

Prebiotics to help with digestion

Prebiotics support gut health and can aid in digestion and immunity. If your child experiences digestive issues or frequently takes antibiotics, a prebiotic supplement might be worth discussing with a healthcare professional.


Dehydration can negatively impact concentration and cognitive function. Send your child to school with a reusable water bottle and encourage them to stay hydrated throughout the day. Limit sugary beverages like sodas and excessive fruit juices.  Proper hydration can also support digestion.
