Let's Crunch&Sip!

Healthy lunchbox and waterbottle

Participating in a daily in class Crunch&Sip break provides an opportunity for children to drink water and eat an extra serve of vegetables or fruit to support good health and to help with learning and concentration in the classroom. All while they are sitting at their desks! 

By choosing to pack vegetables more often, Crunch&Sip is also a fantastic opportunity to increase vegetable intake.

Let's hero healthy habits and remember to pack Crunch&Sip every day!

Desk scene


Are your students struggling to get through the school day? Consider offering a daily in class Crunch&Sip break and allowing your students to refuel on fresh vegies, fruit and to sip on water in the classroom. The rules are flexible, so work out what is best for yourself and your students. Please note Crunch&Sip is not to replace recess and must occur during class time. 

Lunchbox scene


Navigating the lunchbox scene can be tricky, but we’ve got you! Check out our handy guides for packing Crunch&Sip and healthy lunchboxes and make sure your kids get the most out of their school day.

Packing school lunches so they go the distance

The start of the new school year often falls during the hottest months of Summer, which makes it a good time to talk about food safety. As most schools can’t provide fridges for students to store their food in, it is important to pack lunches in a way that keeps food safe throughout the day. Food that hasn’t been prepared or stored correctly can cause food poisoning. This is because when food is not handled properly the harmful bacteria in it can multiply, causing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Nutrition beyond the health lesson

There are opportunities as a teacher to incorporate nutrition into all subjects, not just the health lesson. This means English, HASS, Maths, Science, Arts and Technology can all provide opportunities for learning about nutrition. Incorporating nutrition into literacy, numeracy and problem solving helps to provide students with practical examples and creates associations with real life scenarios.
