Family Resiliency Center Podcast

Sep 12, 2018

Hosted by Ryann Monahan, this podcast "unpacks" the health benefits behind kids packing their own school lunches. Research shows children who are involved with packing their own lunches tend to make healthier choices, end up with more fruits and vegetables, and have an opportunity to learn responsibility. The conversation highlights the in-depth research conducted by Dr. Carolyn Sutter in the areas of food and family mealtimes. Dr. Sutter explains the importance of researching school lunches and how both parents and children can benefit from the lunch-packing process. This research was part of the Parents to Peers project at the University of California at Davis.
