For parents, back-to-school season is more than just shopping for school supplies and new clothes. It’s about setting your child up for success in the upcoming school year. Many things can impact your child’s academic performance—from the foods they eat to the friends that they make. Did you also know the air they breathe can affect their success in school? Poor air quality may cause health problems like fatigue, headaches, allergic reactions, and other types of irritation that can detract from your kiddo’s ability to focus on learning.

The good news is that improving the quality of the air that your child breathes is not as out of reach as you may think. Molekule air purifiers don’t just collect indoor air pollutants, they destroy them. In fact, Molekule’s Air Mini and Air Mini+ purifiers are even FDA-cleared for medical use to destroy viruses and bacteria. While you can’t control the indoor air quality in your kids’ schools,Molekule air purifiers can help improve the air they breathe at home while they make their way to the head of the class.

As we gear up for Back to School after a year of frenzied schedules and hours on Zoom, it’s more important than ever to fuel our kids’ bodies and minds with healthy snacks to help set them up for a successful school year.

Brainiac® is a new snack brand that pulls double duty by providing delicious and nutritious snack favorites like applesauce, bars, yogurt and nut butters with added Omega-3s and choline – vital nutrients for brain health, focus and attention that are often lacking in our kids’ diets.

Brainiac® Applesauce Squeezers are the perfect school fuel – made with seasonal, non-GMO and 100% US grown apples, with no added sugar, and packed with brain and immune boosting nutrients. Each pouch has 160mg of Omega-3 DHA/EPA, 120mg of choline and 25mg of Vitamin C (100% of the recommended daily intake for kids ages 4-8). The resealable BPA-free pouches make them easy to throw into a lunchbox or bag for afterschool activities.

Brainiac® Applesauce is now available at Walmart Supercenter nationwide and comes in three kid-approved flavors: ‘Mega Apple, Apple-Cinnamon and Apple-Strawberry.
