Several families have reached out wondering how they can support their child finishing their lunch! If this is an on-going problem, the first thing to do is to let your child’s teacher know. A simple word of encouragement before they head out to the lunch yard can work wonders. In addition, your child’s teacher can let the lunch staff know and we can remind your child as they eat.
Another important aspect is to include your child in making their lunch. Offer them healthy choices and even have them help prepare their food. Planning out the menu for the week, making fun shapes, offering fun fingers food are all great options. Also, take a look at the school menu and find out if there are options your child is interested in. Mixing up home lunch and school lunch can often make lunches a little more exciting.
