We all want to ensure we are serving up healthy and nutritious food to our kids, especially when it comes to snacks and lunchbox meals. But life is BUSY and ready-made healthy options are not always that readily available, or we simply run out of ideas, and this may make the daily routine of packing lunch seem like a very daunting and sometimes unobtainable task!
‘You don’t have to like it, you only have to eat it!’
In my previous book ‘Raising Happy, Healthy Children’ I covered diet extensively with the help of a clinical nutritionist, Sally Ann Creed, with whom the book was co-written. However, I think it is important to reiterate that what we eat affects the way we behave.
The two go hand in hand. You cannot discipline a child who is being fed incorrectly, and conversely, you cannot enforce healthy eating if you have no discipline in place.
