  • Caffeine free drinks
  • Naturally flavourful with no need to add sugar
  • Affordable
  • Offers health benefits, especially if enriched with vitamins

Example: Laager Tea4kidz + flavours with added vitamin C

  1. Seasonal vegetables & fruits have power.
  • At least 1 fruit a day. Add fruits in smoothies or homemade iced teas or hot teas.
  • At least 2 types of vegetables a day. Hide them in soups, stews for the kids.

Examples: Oranges, strawberries, peppers, spinach, guavas.

  1. Wholegrains are whole.
  • Add at least one wholegrain a day in your child’s diet.
  • Wholegrains can be served as snacks, &/or in soups this winter.

Examples: Baked beans, homemade popcorn, flaxseeds, peanuts, kidney beans, lentils.

  1. Fermented foods are important for your kids.

Examples: Plain yoghurt. Maas, fermented vegetables like sauerkraut.

  1. Spice it up!
  • Add spices, herbs & spicy vegetables that offer good health.
  • Add these to stews, soups & even hot beverages e.g., rooibos tea.
