back to school routine

As summer break is coming to a close, it's time to gear up for the new school year. If you’re looking for a back to school routine for your kiddos, we've got you! 

Steal our tips for a GREAT back to school routine that's all about staying healthy, happy, and ready to conquer the classroom! 

Rise and Shine with the Most Important Meal of the Day

After getting your kids out of bed and getting them excited for the school day ahead, it’s time to make breakfast. Breakfast is the MOST important meal of the day, so let's make it delicious and nutritious! 

Put the sugary breakfast cereals aside and reach for a breakfast that has protein to keep your kiddo’s brain power in top-notch shape for the day.

Whip up a colorful bowl of mixed fruit salad, sprinkle some walnuts on top, and top it off with a generous dollop of Greek yogurt for protein! For those who prefer savory, try whole-grain toast topped with avocado and a sprinkle of cheese with some scrambled eggs on the side. YUM!

If you’re looking for some additional breakfast recipes that your kids will love, check out our best healthy summer smoothie recipes to sneak some more fruits and veggies into your kids’ tummies!

The Trek to School

Who says the journey to school can't be fun? Ditch the car and hop on a bike or take a brisk walk if the weather and distance permit!

If it's a bit too far, consider parking a little farther from school and enjoy a mini-adventure with your kiddo on foot. It's a great way for your kids to stretch their legs and get some fresh air before diving into the day's activities!

Healthy Bites for Healthy Minds

Kids need lots of fuel for an entire day of learning and activities! We recommend packing some delicious and healthy snacks for school for them like crunchy baby carrot sticks or juicy grapes. 

Another amazing snack option is a handful of nuts high in omega-3 fatty acids like walnuts and pecans, because omega-3s are INCREDIBLE for brain functioning and cognition! A delicious, drinkable, kid-friendly omega 3 supplement coming to GutPersonal in August 2023, check it out!!

And don't forget the ultimate thirst quencher – a water bottle to keep those brains sharp and ready for action.

After-School Adventures

School's out, and it's time for some after-school fun! Engaging in creative hobbies like drawing, crafting, or even inventing fun recipes are GREAT ways for your kids to have fun screen-free. 

And for a dose of fresh air, encourage them to head outside for games with friends like tag, hide and seek, or a friendly soccer match!

Study Sessions at Home

Now, time to tackle that homework like a boss! 

Set up a dedicated study space that's both comfy and distraction-free. Encourage your little scholars to take short breaks every 25 minutes and do a quick dance or stretch. Let's shake off the jitters and refocus for even greater success!

Peaceful Bedtime Tips

Finally, it's time to wind down and head to bed. A kid-friendly bedtime routine could include a cozy storytime or even a few minutes of gentle stretching. Sweet dreams are just around the corner!

Pro tip: magnesium is incredible for improving sleep quality. Make a delicious, nutritious, calming magnesium drink before bed using The Miracle Worker!

The Defender Jr. is a delicious chewable for powerful immune support, using all natural ingredients! The Defender Jr. gives your kiddo a boost of support for their immune system before they go back to school, where they will be exposed to new people and bugs!
