Back to School: Healthy Eating for Kids

Written by Choithrams

Having trouble packing lunch for your little one? Read on for some tips to get kids on track for a healthy start to the school year!

Increase your little one’s water intake
Make sure they stay well hydrated during the harsh summer. Buy your children a cool water bottle to take whenever they go out and give them water with their meals. Limit readymade juices and other carbonated drinks to certain occasions.



5 – A- day
Different colours have different health effects, hence it is important to include different color of fruits and veggies in your little one’s diet.


Make it fun by getting them to make a list of their favourite fruits & vegetables and let them choose which ones they want to eat at each meal throughout the day, also make sure they chose different colors. This way, they will definitely eat healthy!

Never let them skip breakfast
Most children eat breakfast because it’s a part of the family routine.
Even if it’s just a banana and a glass of milk, teach your children that some food in their stomach kick starts the body for the day giving them energy for work, study and play.
Also, reduce the amount of sugar sweetened drinks and salt in your child’s diet.


Here are a few healthy recipes for your little one’s school lunch box!
