Handy tip list:
Handy tip – Children who help choose and prepare their own lunch are more likely to eat it
Handy tip – Wash and dry salad vegetables thoroughly to avoid “soggy sandwiches”
Handy tip – Avoid chocolate spreads, jams and honey in sandwiches as these are high in sugar.
Handy tip – Don’t forget a spoon when packing yoghurt, tubs of fruit or a kiwifruit.
