Back to School is a great time to reset and get organized. Read a few of SlimFast Brand Ambassador, Trinity’s tips on how to set yourself up for success.
It’s almost that time of year again, back to school. A time when kids must adjust to early bedtimes and parents stress out over school and extracurricular activity schedules. This stress can cause you to make unhealthy food choices but it doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience. Go into this school year prepared for success by creating a healthier setting in your kitchen.
Organize Your Cabinet & Place the Healthy Options Front and Center
Clean and organize your cabinets and put sweet snacks out of sight. Move fresh fruits to where the children can help themselves when they want a snack. Whenever I am making school lunches, I ask them what they want to pack. I ensure that healthier options are available so that they can pick out orange slices, strawberries or apples before considering sugary snacks. This also helps me stay on track because I love fruit for my snacks as well. A favorite we all enjoy are grapes with crackers, which are easy to pack before heading out the door.
Eat Before Grocery Shopping or Bring Healthy Snacks with You
It’s important not to go grocery shopping for school lunches when you’re hungry. There are so many unhealthy temptations throughout the store including the checkout counters. A good rule of thumb is to eat before heading out to the grocery store. Eliminating temptations can make shopping for healthy options much easier. It also helps to keep snacks with you if you suddenly become hungry. You never know if you will be out of the house longer than expected. I love to keep SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb Iced Lemon Drop Snack Cups and the SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb Real Cheddar Cheese Crisps handy.
Let Your Children be a Part of the Process
My children select their own school lunches for the week, which is always exciting. They stay involved in the grocery shopping trip by helping decide which fruits and vegetables they want included in that week’s menu.
Don’t Forget About Yourself!
Take a quick trip down the SlimFast aisle to stock up on all of your favorite goodies, or shop online and have your favorites delivered straight to your door with Shop SlimFast.
Stay Connected to Your Support System
It’s very important is to have a supportive system. Your weight loss journey can be so much easier when you have someone to share your victories with. You can talk to your partner, a friend or join one of the SlimFast Together groups. There you will find tons of people going through the same experiences that you are. The SlimFast Together groups are great for support and motivation.
These are just a few tips to make going back to school easier on you, your children and your weight loss journey. Now go out there and crush back to school shopping with your kids!
