With the new school term just around the corner, parents all over Ireland are getting their children ready for the back to school season. Along with new books, pencils, backpacks and uniforms, it’s important to keep kids fuelled for the day with the right foods.
In a recent survey carried out by Kelkin among 100 people, 88% of the respondents felt that at least half of the meals they gave their children were healthy and nutritious. For the meals deemed unhealthy by the parents, the main reasons were a mix of convenience, long working hours, and “fussy eaters” in the home. Good news for parents, Kelkin is here to help!
Kelkin’s wide range of products are perfect for fuelling school children’s days in a healthier way, from breakfast to lunch and especially the emergency snacks in between!
