A day away from school here or there doesn’t seem like much but absences add up.
When your child misses one day per fortnight, they miss upwards of four weeks per year which equates to one year missed over their school life.
With the unpredictable nature of our day to day lives, preparing and packing a healthy lunchbox can be a difficult task. Finding time to shop and prepare interesting and healthy meals for school lunches can be stressful. But the foods we send to school with our kids can contribute up to 1/3 of their daily intake of nutrients. So, it’s important to pack a balanced lunch to ensure they’re getting the nutrients they need.
Tips and ideas to help make your child's meal times at school a success.
Eating at school will be a different experience for your child compared with eating at home or at preschool. There are no places to keep food hot or cold. Children often sit on the grass or on benches and balance their food on their knees. They will also need to be able to open everything their food is wrapped in and they won’t want to spend so much time eating that they miss out on playing.
Give your child a headstart by practising the skills they will use in Kindergarten with them.
Set up a play date for your child to play with a friend.
