Chris Donnelly: Stop worrying about what you feed your kids

Considering the nutritional value of each bite ingested for each kid just seems like a nice but unattainable ideal most days.

Now that school’s back in session, we got to thinking about our own days in the classroom and those awkward photos of unforgettable moments.

We asked readers to submit their back-to-school memories and photos, of course.

Some were endearing. Others were random.

But they all made us crack a smile.

school bus safety

Now that children are back to school more big yellow buses are on the roads.

I get so frustrated watching reckless drivers whip around them in a hurry.

“Slow down,” I’ll shout.

When really I’d like to chase after speedy drivers neglecting to stop for school buses with a broom or newspaper. Yes, I’ve become a crabby mommy.

Riding a school bus can be fun for children, but it can also be dangerous if drivers don’t follow school bus safety rules.

Moms have known this for years. Healthy foods = Smart children.

Now a study confirms that.

Better nutrition (especially at breakfast) improves academic performance and social functioning in school.

Make breakfasts rich in zinc, iron, potassium and calcium such as peanut butter, leafy greens and lean turkey or chicken.

I’m hoping my kids learn to manage time better than I do.
