Kids are not the only ones shaking off cobwebs with the return of in-person classes. Even mommies may take a little time adjusting as they take one brave step to let go of their kids and allow them to enjoy the freedom of learning in the outside world. As parents get back into the swing of things, one concern stays on top of their head — does their little one have the physical strength and mental preparedness for this?
One way to equip kids and get them ready for the big battle in the real world is through a winning baon. So to help moms prep for the perfect school snack, here is a quick guide on how to integrate nutrition and fun in our kids’ lunchboxes!
#1: Check the label
The search for the perfect snack is a never-ending quest but for moms, it starts at the grocery store. To provide kids with a snack that is nutritious, read the ingredients list on the packaging first. Check the label for vitamins and nutrients. Does the product encompass brain-to-body benefits that will keep them active and energized throughout the day?
#2: Go, Grow and Glow is the key
It’s a good idea to note if you’re capturing all the nutrients from each food group. Remember that a winning baon should be a mix of go, grow and glow foods. A complete and diverse set of nutrients from each food group is the key to support kids’ performance in school
#3: Make it cute and creative
Even the pickiest eater cannot resist a snack that tastes just as good as it looks. Keep your kids motivated to finish their food by arranging them like their favorite animals or cartoon characters! It’s a clever way to encourage kids to eat more fruits and veggies.
#4: Awaken their inner chef potential
Asking your kid about what he/she likes for snacks is already a given, but involving them in food preparation is a big plus. As parents, we have to encourage kids to start good habits at an early age. Letting them decide on what should be part of their baon and assisting them in making it, empowers kids to stick to healthier choices as they grow up. There’s something about being part of the process that can make children much more interested in trying something new.
#5: Complete their baon with brain-to-body benefits
The choice of baon always depends on two things: its nutrient content and likeability. As parents, our perspective is that, kid’s snacks should help in maintaining mental preparedness and physical health in school. But for kids, all they want is to satisfy their chocolatey cravings.
