Healthy Food for Happy Kinder Kids
Updated: Nov 23, 2019
A drink of water, some chopped up or whole fruit and vegetables, and a sandwich plus small treat (no chocolate bars or muesli bars please) will help your kinder child get the energy and nutrients they need to last through a busy kinder day.
We encourage parents to provide a variety of healthy choices to cover your child’s needs and likes. Make sure you pack enough carbohydrates to keep their energy up!
Snack time gives us an opportunity to talk about the different foods that are good for our bodies as well as give the children a sense of growing independence i.e. bringing their own container and water bottle.
Our food suggestions include:
Cheese and crackers, small savoury muffin (cheese and bacon)
Fruit and vegetables
Yogurt (please provide a spoon)
Sandwich (toasted with baked beans, mini pizza on a muffin – there’s more than jam and vegemite out there)
Sultanas, dried fruit
