Let's Crunch&Sip!

Healthy lunchbox and waterbottle

Participating in a daily 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.

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

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