How to pack right food for your school going children

 

Parents and guardians and or caretakers are advised to pack the right food to the school going children. Foods like Breads, crackers, cassava and sweet potatoes pieces are good for your school going children during break time.

Because these foods provide energy needed to fuel the body throughout the day, fresh fruits like bananas, apples, oranges, mangoes and tangerines are also ideal since they provide vitamins and minerals.

Minerals and vitamins prevent diseases but perishable fruits should be handled with a lot of care. One should ensure that the perishable fruits are stored in a cool dry place and clean containers because they can easily go bad.

Dried fruits like sun-dried bananas, pineapples and pawpaw can easily be kept and less susceptible to contamination. These provide calories that restore the child’s worked-up energy.
