School is just around the corner, which means backpacks and packed lunches await your children. Whether it’s their first year at school or they’re already climbing the ranks, you want to ensure they are making healthy choices when it comes to lunch. However, one aspect you may not have considered when it comes to lunch options is dental health.
Outfit for the first day? Check. Backpack? Check. Lunch box? Check. A nutritious lunch to pack in that new lunch box? Oops. Don’t worry; you’re not alone.

Getting back into the school routine can be a stressful time for any child, let alone those with learning or behavioral disorders. For children with ADHD, it can be difficult to focus in class. Managing your child's ADHD is a crucial step towards helping your child succeed in school.
