Parents spend days preparing for their children’s return to school. Many schools now provide a long list of supplies that children are expected to have when they show up. As parents send their kids off for the first day of school, it’s a good idea to put as much thought into what they’re packing in their kids’ lunchboxes as they do into their school supplies.
While parents wouldn’t send children to school with a lunchbox full of candy bars, they might be packing almost as much sugar when they send them off with some of the popular lunch time classics. Considering that most children brush their teeth in the morning and again before bed, the sugar they put in their mouths at lunch time could stay in there for a while, and that worries some dentists.
