Foods You Should Consider Adding to Your Kid's Lunch bag

For most children, eating is literally a chore! They'd be up and running but as soon as food is served, they switch off. Exception would be their favourite meal. As a parent, you'd agree that you can't keep serving them only their favourites, their diet must be balanced.

Eating at school is another story entirely, partly because you're not there and teachers/day care attendants may not have the time and patience to wait for the kid who stalls in eating the way a parent would. There’s a class full of kids to attend to. You can however pack foods they’d jump at, either by introducing new meals or tweaking daily staples.

There are proven ways to get children to eat more. Incorporating colours, using colourful dishes and unique food plating styles. Try out these meals for your children's lunch packs.

Waffles

The mere of Waffles can be intriguing to kids. They are also very versatile, you can add any topping of your choice. All you need is a waffle maker, get a good recipe online and voila!
