Cut the Fat for Lunch
-- Your kids had a good summer. You were able to get them away from the TV and outside to play for lots of exercise. But now, they're back to school and you want them to keep off the pounds.
The Children's Hospital Medical Center of Cincinnati says lunches provided by many schools are loaded with fat. Packing a lunch for your kids is a healthy alternative, so you can control the amount of food. And include fruit and low-fat snacks, instead of potato chips.
The medical center warns that after-school snacks can be full of fat. Yogurt and fruit are good choices for those times.
