Terra Wellington, Editor-in-Chief of partners with Your Update TV on nationwide media tour to shares tips for a healthy and productive school year.

With a new school year, there’s often a lot of change. Families need to adjust their bedtimes and encourage new homework habits. Parents are also looking for nutritious food to fuel their family’s day. Here are some easy wellness tips and ideas to manage the back-to-school season.

Eat healthy even with a busy back-to-school schedule:
Most families find that eating healthy with a packed schedule can be tough. But if you plan ahead by having healthy items ready to go, it’s much easier.

One avocado product that should be at the top of your list is from GoodFoods, and it’s a great example of how convenience can give you lots of healthy options.

They have 4-pack single serves of guacamole and avocado mash that you can instantly pull from your fridge or put in the kids’ lunchbox. They don’t brown, and they also don’t have added sugar or artificial ingredients. You can make an easy breakfast with the avocado mash on toast while you make the kids’ lunches.

And the ready-to-eat guacamole is full of flavor with huge avocado chunks in every bite — you can use it as a healthy dip for quinoa-and-rice crackers or carrot sticks.

Have a wellness routine to help stay healthy:
It can be easy to run out the door to school without properly brushing your teeth. One product that might help motivate your child to brush better is from Oral B, the #1 Dentist Recommended brand worldwide. It’s their Kids Vitality Rechargeable Toothbrush. It has a built-in timer that can help your child brush for the dentist-recommended full two minutes. Also, its extra-soft brush head gently brushes your child’s teeth and cleans better than a manual toothbrush.

Help your children’s immune system stay strong:
You can fill up on colorful fruits and veggies for a natural immune booster which can also help fight off viruses — examples are oranges, grapefruit, broccoli, and strawberries.

You can also try to get elderberries in your diet as one of our wellness tips. Elderberry is a superfruit which can help keep immune systems in tip-top shape.

And if you’re looking for an elderberry option for kids — Dimetapp has new Children’s Immune Support Elderberry Gummies. These are a medicine-free option for kids to get their everyday immune support — they taste great and kids love gummies, of course. And they help support a healthy immune function for children ages 2 and over. Here at SMG we might also say “it’s a child-approved way” to fuel your kids with Vitamins C, D, E, and Zinc.
