I’m So Hungry!
It’s 3:15. You just got home from school and you’re so hungry you could eat a horse. What to do? First, make sure you had a healthy lunch (http://kidshealth.org/kid/stay_healthy/food/school_lunches.html?tracking=K_RelatedArticle#cat20738). Second, have a snack!
Your parents may do just fine on 3 meals a day, but you need to eat more often. After all, going to school all day takes a lot of energy, especially if you’re running too.
Most kids get hungry around 3:00pm – right at the end of the school day – and dinner may not be for a few more hours. Yikes! That’s a lot time to go with a rumbly tummy. So it’s a great time to have an afternoon snack. Just make sure not to eat so much that you spoil your dinner.
What should you have?
