Nutrition Tip: Probiotics are live bacteria that are present in certain foods, like Greek yogurt, that help enhance the body’s digestive system by improving the gut flora.

Back To School Tips
One thing I like to help us all stay organized in the morning is line up the backpacks in the hallway for easier grabbing on the way out the door. Make sure to fill each backpack with the required school supplies so the kids will be ready to grab their gear and go!
Have a blackboard, dry erase board, calendar, or push pin board ready and cleared out to receive the school, sports, and other schedules and notices soon to pile up.
Prep lunches the night before!
