5 Back-to-School Meals for Kids
School is sneaking up on us again and it’s time to think of healthy and delicious meal ideas to serve your children throughout the day.
1. Breakfast on Schooldays
As an extra calcium boost, serve a separate glass of milk (or a smoothie) in addition to the milk poured over breakfast cereal. Encourage fruit at breakfast too – a glass of diluted fruit juice or fresh fruit sliced on the cereal helps to absorb calcium easily.
3. Lunch at School
Cold pizza slice with extra cheese sneaks in more calcium, and scatter vitamin-rich vegetables on top; includes boxes of salads or some raw vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks or cucumber slices. Finish with a chocolate biscuit and fresh fruit.
4. After-School Snacks
Deliver extra milk in the form of “treats” such as milkshakes, smoothies or hot chocolate, depending on the weather.
