Parents Magazine Features Back to School Healthy Lunchbox Ideas and Back to School Fashion

August 14, 2010

NEW YORK, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ — Parents looking for back to school ideas will find everything they need at Parents.com, including the latest back to school fashion, secrets for school success, and healthy lunchbox snacks tips. The transition from summer to back to school is always busy, but Parents magazine smoothes the way by anticipating what parents will need to glide through without too much stress.

“Whether your child is entering preschool for the first time or moving into a higher grade in elementary school, we cover all the bases with suggestions for school supplies, clothing and healthy lunchbox ideas,” said Dana Points, Parents magazine’s editor-in-chief. “We also include tips on how to help your child achieve school success and how to establish a good relationship with your child’s teacher.”

Young children going to school for their very first day can experience separation anxiety and Parents.com suggests activities to do before the first day, such as playing pretend school and introducing school mates prior to the first day. On the first day of school, Parents.com recommends a quick goodbye and no lingering to see if the child has stopped crying.

It’s always a challenge to pack a healthy lunchbox, but Parents.com has child-tempting recipes for healthy brain food, such as hummus with child-size veggies, sweet-potato chips, and salad scoops made with corn chips. Kids will also like the lunchbox snacks, such as nutty popcorn and fruit mix.

Once children get to be of a certain age, they are very interested in back to school fashion, and Parents.com has resources for trendy backpacks and cool school supplies. With today’s economy, parents will be happy to see the money saving tips that allow them to afford what will make the back to school experience a happy one.

Most importantly, when school starts, parents are concerned about their child’s school success. Parents.com offers advice about making sure your child has a good night’s sleep and eats a good healthy breakfast, and also suggests things parents can do to help their child be successful – mainly participate in the school process.

To share your family’s parenting tips and interact with other parents, Parents.com invites parents to follow them on Twitter @parentsmagazine and in the Parents Community at http://community.parents.com.
