It is primary Shakespeare week and the primary students are to bring a packed lunch each day except Tuesday (UNLESS YOU ARE TOLD OTHERWISE BY YOUR TEACHER). As I have watched and listened to all the plays every year I know that this year each and every play will be wonderful and the students will all be triumphant in their roles.
In the JCS kitchen we truly like to entertain the children where we can. Halloween is one of those whimsical fun days that we go ‘All Out’ for the children. We still supply a healthy lunch with a little extra fun – just like dessert, but better!
Monday: MIXED VEGETABLE SOUP Tuesday: TOMATO & SPINACH PASTA Wednesday: HOKKIEN FRIED NOODLES AND RICE SALAD Thursday: ROAST VEGETABLES with Banofee Pie Friday: MEXICAN BOATS
Repurpose Your Veggies! It is time to start repurposing your vegetable skins, roots, leaves and stalks. Stop throwing away these parts of your food and find fun ways to serve them back to your family whilst saving money, lowering the use of packaged foods and increasing the vitamin intake of your family. The roots, stems, skins and leaves of many of our vegetables can be turned into many happy snacks and food items such as; broccoli leaves into chips, cauliflower stems into rice, and watermelon rind into pickles! Protect the planet whilst feeding your family with thought and nutrient dense foods.

During the holiday, remember to attempt a new food or two. It is always good practice to channel your child’s inner foodie. Another idea is to involve them in the kitchen on a new meal choice to increase their desire to eat what they have created. If you have a fussy eater, stay strong – child dieticians recommend that if you can get a fussy eater to eat ONLY 5 new foods each year, you are in front! Have a great winter break and stay safe and warm.
