How to help kids ease back into a school time routine.
For many children, the start of a new school year is fast approaching. While some things may look different, given the pandemic, much will be the same. And as is the case every year, there are a few things you can do to make the start of the school year infinitely easier.
Summers are made for late nights and sleeping in, but those hours don’t work so well during the school year. Start rolling bedtime back incrementally during the week before school starts to ease kids into the transition. Same goes with waking up…start setting alarms a few minutes early each day until kids are waking up close the time they’ll have to rise and shine for school. Trust us…you and your kiddos will both be grateful for the gentle adjustment.
Back to school means potential exposure to a variety of germs and viruses, so it’s a good time to remind kids how to practice good hygiene and the right way to wash their hands. According to the CDC, germs are spread when you:
So, what’s the right to wash your hands? Teach your children these simple steps:
Having a quality hand sanitizer available is crucial for times when hand washing isn’t possible. Our Immune Support Waterless Handwash is aloe based, effective in killing harmful germs and bacteria, and comes in both a standard and handy travel size. Keep the large pump bottle for home and send the smaller bottle to school with your kids.
Back to school is a busy time and kids need plenty of wholesome, nutrient-rich food to get them through their day.
Make sure they start their morning with a hearty breakfast that will hold them over until lunchtime. Offering meals that combine protein with whole grains will keep kiddos satisfied for hours. We love this Almond Joy Baked Oatmeal that is wonderfully nutritious and tastes like a candy bar!
If your children prefer something savory for breakfast, try these delicious Spinach and Prosciutto Quiche Cups. Once they’ve cooled down, they’re perfect taking in the car for breakfast on the go if you’re pressed for time.
The same rule applies to lunches. Kids need a good mix of protein and complex carbohydrates to keep their energy up for the second half of the day.
Here are some healthy lunch ideas:
There’s something comforting about getting back into the routine of the school year. From all of us here at Nalakai, we wish you and your kiddos an easy transition into the educational season.
Happy learning, little ones!

Ahhh, remember those heady days of grade school and the way we would count down the days, hours, and seconds until the final bell rang, setting us free for a couple of glorious unschooled weeks over the holiday break? There simply was no better feeling.
