Lunch box nutrition
Kids who eat well during the school day are more likely to have higher concentration levels for the duration of the school day. However, it can be a big challenge for parents to keep lunchboxes creative throughout the whole school year. We recommend mixing up the food during the week and incorporating lots of colourful veggies such as sliced peppers, carrots, celery and cucumber, fresh fruits, water or fresh lemonade, proteins such as eggs or lean meat and finally a smaller portion of carbohydrates as well as a serving of dairy such as milk or yoghurt. Occasionally surprise your child with a treat but only add it as a reward for finishing their lunch the previous day/week.

Importance of Suhoor during Ramadan
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of ensuring that you have a meal at Suhoor. Suhoor stimulates the digestive system, maintains blood glucose levels and also aids in preventing thirst during the fasting period. In order to fast throughout the day, our bodies need to be fueled at Suhoor with light but wholesome, energy-rich foods including eggs, muesli, yoghurt, oats, raw nuts, soups, lots of fresh vegetables (tabbouleh, fattoush) and fruits and plenty of water and/ or non-caffeinated herbal tea. Foods that are rich in fiber and that help release energy slowly during the day’s fast will help you get through your day better.  At Suhoor, it is best to avoid complex, processed carbs and caffeine but it is recommended to consume one to three dates at the end of your meal to keep you fueled for the day ahead. Happy Fasting!

Eat your breakfast!
It’s a common misconception that skipping your breakfast will help you lose weight. But did you know that people who eat breakfast tend to weigh less then their non-breakfast eating buddies? You’ve heard it all before but it’s worth shouting out about it again…breakfast is the most important meal of the day people and should account for 1/3 of your day’s calories & nutrients. Try a cup of tea, good bacteria bearing yoghurts such as Activia and mineral-rich oats, topped with fresh seasonal berries! Delightful!

PALEO lifestyle
The Paleo Diet, also known as the paleolithic diet or caveman diet is based on the simple understanding that the best human diet is the one to which we are genetically adapted. This includes foods such as all game meat, fish, vegetables, wild fruits, eggs and nuts. The Paleo Diet is all about the consumption of natural foods to maximize optimal health and enhance physique.
