When it is back to school time in North Texas there are a couple of quick tips to help the kids start off the new year right.

1. Make sure your kids start the day off with a balanced nutritional breakfast.  Eggs, whole grain cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole multi-grain with REAL butter will give them energy and help to maintain their focus at school.

2. Another important thing to do is make sure they are staying hydrated with plenty of water.  This time of year it takes just a few minutes in 100+ degree weather to start getting dehydrated. 

These two simple things can give your kids that little boost, which helps throughout those long days of school.

Following these suggestions throughout the year is a good idea, though you will have to work a little harder to make them drink enough water when it is chilly outside.
