Children are asked to save their chocolate, biscuits and crips for lunchtime. Breaktime snacks should be of a healthy, low-sugar nature. Healthy snacks help manage children’s hunger and boost nutrition. Snacks can also help keep children from getting so hungry that they get restless. Snacks may help prevent overeating at meals. We have been very impressed with the array of healthy breaktime snacks and in particular those that Year Three are bringing into school. In addition to the giant carrot (photographed), we are seeing apples, broad beans, yoghurts, chopped mango, chopped melon, pepper sticks, pretzels, popcorn and more. Such wonderful snack ideas – all packed in reusable containers or bags which is also helping our environment and reducing packaging costs. Awesome!
