Do your kids or grandkids take packed lunches or have school dinners?
The news is reporting how kids packed lunches are still filled with unhealthy things...sugary treats etc however they did also report (but it was snuck in not a headline) that sugar levels in packed lunches have dropped...
I think that lots of us are aware of the importance of feeding our kids as well as we can.......someone did say on the news when interviewed that her view was that it was expensive to get healthy snacks for her kids lunchbox.......what do you think?
My son is in year one and so he gets free school dinners at the moment which we have gone with...most days he tells me has had fish so who knows...BUT he always has a dessert........so is that healthy?
Its a minefield isn't it.....how to feed your kids healthy food that they will actually eat and enjoy.........my daughter is at secondary school and has her own money to take...so that becomes another minefield as I have no control really as to what she spends it on
As always I continue to feed them as best as I can at home.....giving them an appreciation for home cooked meals....but everything in moderation....and always referring to foods around health...so the language I use is " good or bad for your skin, teeth, muscles etc" never using language around making you put weight on etc..
Also my kids are active, they do lots of exercise so thats important as well...
I would love to get your thoughts on this.....do your kids take packed lunches? How do you make them healthy? Do you worry about your kids diet?
