October 17th is the annual Take Your Parents To Lunch Day. Aimed at school age children and their parents, this campaign aims to educate parents and their off spring about the benefits of a healthy lunch and what goes into creating healthy school lunches.
It is also a prime opportunity to create further dialogue between schools and the children’s carers around the subject matter of healthy eating. There is also the added benefit of being able to sit down with your children and their friends, experience a school cafeteria and engage in some informal chit chat.
Raise awareness of the day by using the hashtag #KIWIlunchday and share photos of your event. The website has lots of tips to make it easy to arrange, along with checklists, letter templates and ideas.
The event is sponsored by KIWI magazine, supported by the School Nutrition Association and Moms Meet.
