We all know the importance of having a good breakfast. To reinforce that healthy message, SoCal McDonald’s in Orange County offered a free breakfast on the first day of school for any student who came in with an adult. Nothing says breakfast like an Egg McMuffin!
“A strong source of protein at breakfast delivers the kind of energy students need to focus in the classroom all morning long,” said Bonnie Modugno, MS, RD, consulting for Southern California McDonald’s. “McDonald’s line of Egg McMuffin sandwiches made with whole grain and served with apples and low fat milk provides students a great start that can be a catalyst for eating well throughout the day.”
What else did you do to get ready for back-to-school? Thanks to school websites and emails, parents don’t have wait until that first day of school to go shopping for all the school supplies. Many schools sent out those lists weeks in advance. This certainly made shopping a lot less hectic and reduced the potential for fights over the last box of Crayons!
Another proactive way you can get ready for back-to-school is to clean up your home. You probably do this on some level every week but when was the last time you got rid of all your junk? Clearing out this kind of clutter can help you set up a place for the kids to study and do their homework. It could also make getting in and out of your garage every morning a whole lot easier. If you’re not tripping over clutter then you won’t be late!
Cleaning out junk in your kids’ rooms can also help them focus on their studying. Better yet you could set up a table or desk in the family room that is dedicated to homework. This way you can keep an eye on them to make sure they are getting the work done without checking Facebook every five minutes. To make room for that study area you could get rid of some old furniture or other things you’re hanging onto.

Could a tsunami hit the OC? According to the U.S. Geological Survey the answer is yes but only if the unthinkable were to happen. That would mean a 9.1 earthquake striking off the coast of Alaska. That was the simulation run by the USGS and it meant a catastrophic event for SoCal. If this were to happen, it would force the evacuation of up to 750,000 people.
