Be prepared and organised
Pack lunchboxes the evening before, rather than during the hectic school morning rush.
Get the kids involved
Learning about food and nutrition are important life skills & should be encouraged from an early age.
Try new foods
Children’s food preferences evolve as they mature, so continuously encouraging them to try new and different foods is a crucial step in their development of good eating habits.
Shake things up
Variety is key: not only does variation in the diet provide nutritional benefits, but it reduces boredom and lack of interest in food.
It is worth spending that extra few minutes on presentation, especially for younger children. Aim for a variety of shapes, colours and textures.
Don’t forget about hydration
Research suggests dehydration can lead to reduced concentration and performance in children. Water and milk are two excellent tooth-friendly choices; try to avoid sugary drinks.
