With the warmer weather here, I am sure that you all agree that health and fitness is important.
A healthy body is the key to a healthy mind. It’s not easy being a student and for students, staying fit and healthy is important to meet the challenges at school.
A well-balanced diet from a young age lays the foundation for the future.
Some points to keep in mind when arranging meals for your child’s diet:
Proper portion size: To avoid over-eating keep track of how much you are eating. Get a fix on the ideal portion size for vegetables as well as meat/chicken
Mix your meals: To ensure you do not miss out on anything mix your meals so you have something different every day / week
Eat breakfast: No matter how busy, you cannot compromise on a good breakfast. Begin your day with a good breakfast.
Drink water: Water is one of those things that just doesn’t make it to most priority lists. This can be costly. For students looking to study and concentrate for long hours, drinking enough water is important. Carry a bottle of water with you all the time.
Limit sugary drinks and junk food: Students eat out a lot which is not bad in itself, so long as they avoid junk food and sugary beverages. It is a matter of finding food that is tasty as also healthy.
At St Bishoy, we are committed to modelling this for our students. Our success will only be as good as the partnership with home.
