To help your child become an autonomous and resilient learner:
Encourage your child to develop and maintain healthy eating habits
As they say, “you are what you eat.”
To help your child feel better, have more consistent energy levels, and perform better in school:
- Encourage your child to eat a wide variety of fresh foods from all food groups;
- Encourage your child to drink lots of water throughout the day;
- Limit the amount of sweet drinks and snacks your child consumes (such as juice, soft drinks, cookies, granola bars, puddings);
- Limit the number of processed foods your child consumes (such as chips, flavoured crackers, instant noodles, and hot dogs), as they are usually very high in salt and artificial flavourings and colourings.
