Leaves are beginning to turn, and temperatures are beginning to drop. It's time to bring out those cute boots and our favorite cardigans again. But also, it's a good time to think about what we're putting into our bodies and not just on them.
Fall is right around the corner and many superfoods will hit their peak season. The autumn harvest brings a wide variety of healthy and delicious produce, from winter squash and sweet potatoes to pears and apples. We also often tend to crave different foods as the seasons turn.
It is also imperative to follow proper food safety practices to reduce the risk of food poisoning. Remind children to refrigerate their lunch within two hours. If the child won't have access to a refrigerator, pack lunch in an insulated cooler with plenty of icepacks.
