It’s the first day back at school for my little warriors so it’s a good day to launch my latest competition to win a World of Warriors™ lunchbox bundle. It was with mixed emotions eldest went back to school, full of nervous excitement and a touch of sadness that the summer he said was his most enjoyable yet was now over! So in case we have other children feeling the same I thought this lovely competition is sure to cheer them up, see the picture below of the lunchbox, drink bottle and snack box prize but you also get the warrior rucksack to get your lunch to school safely.
Mind Candy’s™ World of Warriors™ want to make going back to school as enjoyable as possible and what better way than with a thrilling new lunchbox. I remember getting so excited picking out my new items for school; it was part of the build up that seemed to settle me quicker into my next class. Plus children love seeing what brands their friends have and what characters everyone likes at the moment.
If you children have packed lunches it can be tricky finding healthy options they will eat, that is not the same BORING option every day. Children need some variety to look forward to opening their lunch box! I did try packed lunches for a short spell but I found eldest came back with an almost full lunchbox each time!!! I am not sure if it was the food I was offering him or the fact he knew the less he ate the quicker he got to play outside in the school field!
Children are in school a long time though so need to have a nourishing lunch to keep them going, learning, playing and thriving. You need to motivate them to eat up what is offered so they are in a better position to cope with the challenges of the school day. Child nutrition consultant Charlotte Stirling-Reed said it’s important to “offer a really well balanced meal in their lunchbox” and went on to say, “Associating popular characters with healthy food choices is an excellent idea”.
Try and make the lunchbox appealing in some way, not only by having their favourite characters like World of Warriors™ but by adding a note or a joke even, colourful napkins or even try bento if you feel very creative! I like how Charlotte Stirling-Reed suggests getting children involved in their lunches, picking out the fruits and vegetables, helping write shopping lists and of course listening to their preferences. Together you will hopefully come up with a range of healthy options that will keep both parent and child happy! In the boys school anything that is uneaten is returned so you get an accurate gauge of how much your child has managed to eat, but it is worth bearing in mind that some schools throw away the contents so its worth talking to your school if you think your child is eating less but still coming home with an empty lunchbox.
