Start school with these super snack and berry-brainy breakfast ideas
With the kids back to school and parents back into a routine, we've got some great ideas to keep sane and healthy when the days get busy, from berry-liant breakfasts to school snacks to fuel active minds and bodies all day long.
Berries aren’t just packed with fibre, nutrients and antioxidants needed for good health, they're also packed with berry-brainy phytochemicals that have beneficial effects on the brain. Despite their low sugar count most children love the sweet taste of berries. Best of all, berries need little or no preparation so can be considered the ultimate fast food.
Eating berries as snacks will give the body and mind the fuel it needs to get through the day. Healthy snacking has been shown to curb cravings, control energy levels and improve mood!
Berries also are great for adding to school lunchboxes or as an after-school treat. Snacking on berries instead of biscuits means less mess, great taste and plenty of goodness.
