Back To School…Back To Bad Habits?

 

Can’t believe it’s that time of year already? Back to uniforms, new shoes and…packed lunches and school dinners.

Packed lunches can be a source of daily stress. The cause is often that we over-complicate things.   Remember how summer lunches and snacks never seem to be so difficult and kids will eat a lot of the simpler, fresher options you prepare? This seems particularly true if you go abroad and prepared meals or take-aways are not available and salads, a sliced tomato, mozzarella and the local baguette suddenly become very popular.  So why not keep this simplicity going through the year?

Try and identify about five things your children enjoyed this summer – be it salads, fruit, cheese, sushi, bread, chicken, fresh crudités – and offer a variety of them. I particularly like the multi-compartmented boxes where you can put a mix of various foods – in small amounts, to give them choice. Make it simple (cut up vegetables, cubed omelette, a boiled egg, fruit, a little cheese, a handful of seeds, houmous/dips, pieces of roast chicken, buttered cubes of wholewheat/rye bread), but make sure it’s appetizing, colourful and most of all varied. And remember that if they don’t finish the box, you can make up for it with their after-school snack – a great opportunity to include healthy foods as they’ll be ravenous and more likely to want to eat anything that’s on offer.
