Please make sure to follow our healthy snacks habits. We, at La Petite Ecole Bilingue, are trying to encourage children to eat healthy and not too sweet, too fatty or too salty and keep the richer food for exceptional occasions.
Half the sugar children are having comes from snacks and sugary drinks.
Too much sugar can lead to harmful fat building up inside and serious health problems, including painful tooth decay. Saturated fats leads to build up harmful fats in bodies which might develop in their adult life as heart diseases, type 2 diabetes etc…
Fruit and vegetables are always the best choice, but if you're shopping for packaged snacks for your children, look for 100 calorie snacks, two a day max!
