After a few weeks into the back to school routine, how are you doing with the adjustment? It can sometimes be a stretch to transition from easy-going summer days to a more structured fall schedule. Finding simple ways to facilitate the new routine and help make your days less chaotic is key. One of the common stressors is mealtime.
