With a new school year, there's often a lot of change. Families need to adjust their bedtimes and encourage new homework habits. Parents are also looking for nutritious food to fuel their family's day. Recently, Terra Wellington, Editor in Chief of, teamed with YourUpdateTV to offer easy tips and ideas to manage the back-to-school season.

Managing Sleep Schedules:

As a mom, going from summer to a school schedule can mess up the families sleep time, which can leave parents tired.

If you want to get more sleep but don't feel tired at 9:30 or 10 PM, a melatonin supplement is a great option for parents. For example, Natrol, the #1 melatonin brand in America, can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer so that you wake up feeling refreshed for those busy mornings. There are several varieties – there's fast dissolve, time release, and gummies and they are 100 percent drug free and non-habit forming.

Quality Family Time:

Studies show that giving your children and yourselves time to slow down actually helps with learning and self-esteem. One way to do this is with a family meal to help you recharge, laugh, relax, and tell stories.

If you're going out to eat together, one place that has a lot of great options is California Pizza Kitchen which is known for offering a wide variety of innovative menu items made with lots of fresh ingredients and tons of awesome veggies. In fact, the restaurant's popular Cauliflower Pizza Crust is now available in a smaller 7-inch size, as part of its kids' menu and is a first from a national restaurant brand. It's a crispy and delicious, veggie-based pizza crust that kids love and parents can feel good about. Your kids won't believe that their pizza is made with cauliflower!

Wholesome Snacks:

Back to school is so busy for all of us, so parents should keep wholesome snacks on hand.
Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP is a great example. It's a whole-grain popcorn snack for parents and kids. They now have 6-count multi-packs in pre-portioned snack bags for their Sea Salt and Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn varieties. This makes it easier to grab a flavorful snack that is better for you while you're on the go or for lunchboxes. You can find them online or in-store at Walmart and Target.

American Pecans are another great example as a snack or for fueling every part of your day. The Original Supernut is super nutritious, super versatile, and compared to other tree nuts, are high in fiber and low in carbs per serving. You can use them in breakfast smoothies, homemade superfood energy bars, or as a nutritious crispy coating for chicken and other proteins. They are also among the highest in mono-unsaturated fat — the good fat — and have 3 grams of plant protein per serving.
