Covid-19 has disrupted our world and also increased the focus on wellness and protecting our health, especially that of our precious family. So, it’s no surprise to hear that Google searches on what to eat for immunity have skyrocketed. Ultimately, we know that a healthy diet, regular physical activity, low stress levels and a good night’s sleep are the best immune boosting strategies. But are there specific foods that you should focus on when it comes to feeding your kids? Let’s check out the tried and true immune boosters.
If there is one small silver lining from this pandemic year, it’s been the growing interest in home cooking. In Australia, Google searches for ‘healthy recipes’ more than doubled during the first lockdown in April1, as our favourite restaurants and cafes were forced to shut down. Whilst the initial dusting off of old recipe books may have been born out of necessity, many Australians have discovered long lasting passions for transforming the humble meat-and-three-veg dinner into something a bit more special.
During this crazy time of our lives when the world seems upside down, we all need to practise more of the ‘eat, pray, love’ philosophy. We need to eat food that satisfies our bodies and minds, we need to pray that things turn back to “normal” as soon as possible and we need to give ourselves and our wider community as much love as possible to get through these trying times.
Being a parent is a tough job. Add a child’s food restrictions and life becomes a lot more complex. Food allergies are common challenges facing parents and schools, with studies reporting that one in ten Australian children are allergic to one or more foods. Unfortunately, the rate of allergy prevalence appears to be increasing, with figures suggesting a 100% increase in peanut allergy over the past 15 years and hospital admissions for anaphylaxis have doubled over the last decade.
Back to school signals the exciting start to another learning year. But let’s be honest, the biggest challenge often lies with us – the dedicated breakfast making, lunch planning and dinner rushed parents. Increasingly, research shows the importance of eating right not only for growth and development, but also for optimal learning, for mind and mood and for sport and play. Let’s explore the essential nutrients to focus on and practical tips for making the grade.
A snack or lunch order from the canteen will probably rate as a highlight of school for most Australian kids. Many parents too will have fond memories of their favourite school canteen moments. Days of paper bags filled with delicious sandwiches, dripping icy poles on hot summer mornings and jostling in the queues trying to beat the others to reach the front.
It’s almost back to school time and we’re about to look down the barrel of roughly 200 days (per child) of packing lunchboxes. Whether the thought of packing lunchboxes fills you with dread or excitement, these three back to school to dos will help get you more organised so packing lunchboxes is a more pleasant task.
In Australia, every school term has about 50 days and every school year has about 200 days. That’s a lot of days to pack lunchboxes! Then multiply 200 days by the number of children you have – now that’s a lot of lunchboxes to pack.
School’s gone back for the year which means we’ve got around 200 school lunchboxes to pack per child. Parents often tell The Root Cause that their biggest concerns around packing lunchboxes are:
A guide for parents on identifying bully behaviour and how to deal with it. What is bullying? One in four students are bullied in Australian schools. It is an endemic problem that we need to teach our children to identify and into the future, have enough resilience to be a part of the solution.
Sometimes we label childrens’ behaviours towards others as bullying, when in fact it isn’t. Nasty, mean or rude behaviour is awful but it is not bullying. Nasty, mean or rude behaviour is something that we all need to learn how to deal with unfortunately, because it is a part of life and human behaviour.
