As important as it is to get your child prepared for the school year, it is equally important to make environmentally friendly buying choices. Our planet is covered in plastic, the problem does not seem to improving, and we are certainly experiencing the devastating effects. You can improve the health of both your family and the planet by choosing eco-friendly back to school items. Here is Perfect Supplements’ list of must have items!
I don’t have children, but if I did, I probably would not allow them to drink from the chlorinated and fluoridated school water fountains. For a healthier school year, send your kids to school with a BPA-free water bottle filled with filtered water! Got an older child heading off to college? Help them prepare for dorm life with a BPA-free water bottle and a water filtration pitcher to ensure they aren’t drinking contaminated water.
Eco-Friendly Lunch Boxes
Pre-packaged snacks, plastic sports drinks, plastic bags- UGH, that is a lot of plastic for both your little one and the environment! Sent them to school with homemade lunches and healthy snacks in an eco-friendly lunch box. Eco-friendly lunches are perfect for lunches on the university quad and in the office too!
Back to School Supplements
Fermented Cod Liver Oil is an ideal supplement for children because it is packed with EPA and DHA, two nutrients that are vital for brain development and functioning. While these essential fatty acids are needed by everyone, research indicates that children with ADHD or other learning difficulties particularly benefit fermented cod liver oil.
Perfect Acai Revive is another excellent back to school supplement because it works to boost energy as well as mental focus and performance. The adaptogens found in Perfect Acai Revive, cordyceps and rhodiola, also work to combat stress and anxiety. Perfect Acai Revive is the perfect superfood boost for transitioning from summer vacation to the school year.
Perfect Plant Protein is perfect for making quick, healthy breakfast shakes and smoothies that will provide your child with the energy he or she needs. Use Perfect Plant Protein to add a healthy serving of plant based protein to smoothies, yogurt, and even baked goods like pancakes and muffins.
Garden of Life Kids Multivitamin is the perfect nutritional boost for your little one! Its the first ever non-GMO children’s vitamin and it is crafted with over 24 organic fruits and vegetables to supply your child with 100% DV of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and B vitamins.
Last but not least, don’t forget to send your kid back to school with our organic and fairly traded lip balm! As the weather gets colder and the air becomes crisper, little lips and get chapped and sore. Fight the brisk breeze at the morning bus stop with Perfect Lip Nutrients.
