"We found that children were lacking energy in the afternoon. It [Crunch&Sip breaks] adds 'fuel to the tank' to allow them to continue through the afternoon" - Crunch&Sip Teacher
Are your students:
- Starving long before recess?
- Lagging in energy?
- Too busy playing at lunch time to eat anything?
- Not eating enough vegetables and fruit every day for good health?
- Complaining they're thirsty or getting headaches from not drinking enough water?
Incorporating a regular Crunch&Sip time is a great way to improve concentration levels and behaviour in the classroom. By promoting healthy eating habits, teachers can also positively influence students’ long term health.
Although primary school kids in WA are doing a great job of eating enough fruit, only 1 in 6 eats enough vegetables. For this reason, we would love Teacher's to encourage students and their families to bring vegetables as the snack of choice for Crunch&Sip breaks. Choosing vegetables for Crunch&Sip is a great way for kids to increase their overall vegetable intake and get one step closer to meeting the guidelines.
