With the end of August inching closer, it is once again time for parents and kids alike to trade long, relaxed summer days

for hectic, early school-time mornings. An involuntary bargain, but inevitable nonetheless. Although the summer has its perks from the perspective of a children's health advocate--an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, sunny days perfect for swims, bike rides, and outdoor play--it also has its setbacks. The lack of routine produced by the abandonment of the classroom can foster bad habits, such as skipping breakfast or overindulging in late night desserts. Back-to-school season is here, and the registered dietitians at Cabot Creamery Cooperative, the farm family owned dairy cooperative widely known as the makers of the "World's Best Cheddar," think that with it comes the perfect chance to refocus and make healthy eating part of your family's routine.

"With kids heading back to school, it's especially important to fuel them with healthy food all day long," says Sara Wing, Cabot Registered Dietitian. "That means starting every day with a healthy breakfast, packing a nutritious snack, and helping make healthy lunches a reality. And fortunately, these same tips apply to parents and adults as well."

Here are our top back to school healthy eating tips:

>>Choose balanced breakfast options that include a source of lean protein. Try adding Greek-style yogurt or cottage cheese to smoothies, scrambling eggs with cheddar cheese for a breakfast burrito, or serving a low-sugar, whole grain cereal with low-fat milk. Protein helps keep you feeling fuller longer.

>>Pack a balanced snack. Instead of just sending snack crackers, add a snack-size slice of cheese or pair an apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter for protein and healthy fat.

>>Create a lunch that's both healthy and satisfying. Kids like fun! So if you're packing a lunch for your child, get creative. Mix plain Greek yogurt with powdered ranch dressing to create a healthy dip that will make veggies fun to eat. Build sandwiches on whole wheat bread and use a cookie cutter to cut into fun shapes.

No matter the time of day, it's important to make healthy, nutritious food easily accessible to avoid grabbing less nutritious snack foods. To help parents get the right mix of foods necessary to fuel their kids, or themselves, through a long day, Cabot's registered dietitians developed the Brown Bag Builder, which outlines the correct servings of grains, veggies, protein, fruit, and dairy in a healthy lunch.

"Eating healthy can feel boring, especially to a small child," says Wing. "Recipes like Monkey Toast, Chicken and Black Bean Burrito, PB&J Smoothie, and Whole Grain Get-Up-And-Go Bars are fun and simple to make, and will excite your kids about eating healthy."

See below for those recipes, and find more unique and nutritious kid's recipes at cabotcheese.coop/recipes.
