“No, I’m not having that, it’s YUK”
“But I don’t like it”
“Why do I have to eat it?”
It’s a fact that 1 in 4 children in Ireland is overweight or obese.
Childhood obesity is associated with premature death and disability in adulthood.
I know you care deeply about that your kids eat but packing school lunch is no fun and it’s not rewarding either. The tedium of doing it day in day out and the frustration of kids complaining about or not eating what you pack can drive you around the bend.
While most primary schools now enforce healthy eating policies it is not always easy to think of healthy alternatives that children will enjoy.
We hope to make life a little easier for you as your children start a new school year.
