"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 break 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.
From 2017 Crunch&Sip will be entering a new phase in which students are encouraged to bring vegetables as the snack of choice for Crunch&Sip breaks. Although primary school aged children in WA are doing a great job of eating enough fruit, only 1 in 6 eats enough vegetables. 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.
