Nutrition Tip of the Month
Balance your Lunch with Brenner FIT
Eating lunch is very important for everyone. Lunch re-energizes our bodies and keeps our metabolism active throughout the day. When packing a balanced lunch for yourself or for your child, aim for three to four food groups. An example of a balanced lunch would be chicken salad with crackers, baby carrots and grapes. Having a mixture of three to four food groups helps to fill our tummy up and last until the next meal! Join Brenner FIT’s dietitian, Katie Maxey, to learn more about preparing a Balanced Lunch.
