How to Eat Healthier at School
By Sydney Shapiro
Eating healthy at school seems to be a problem with teenagers. There are so many fast food places that are just steps away from the school. Let’s not forget the cookies and cinnamon buns in the cafeteria. But, there is a way to eat healthier even with all these unhealthy temptations!
Try planning out your week’s lunches on your phone or calendar:
Monday – Sandwich, fruit, and a juice box
Tuesday – Pasta, cucumbers, and water
Wednesday – Hamburger, carrots, and a juice box
Thursday – Hummus and veggies, water, and turkey sandwich
Friday – Greek salad, fruit, and water
Some steps to follow while enjoying your lunch at Forest Hill:
- Don’t be tempted by the smell of the cafeteria cookies.
- Try the fruit bowls and salads in the cafeteria fridge (yes, they do sell fruit!).
- Stay at school with your home-packed lunch instead of eating out on Eglinton.
Eating healthy at school can be very simple and easy!
