What's for lunch?

Packing a healthy lunchbox

Children need to eat a variety of foods everyday to be healthy.

Food Activities

Food activities are a great way to teach children about different types of foods, and to involve them in food preparation. There are countless ways that you can use foods to engage children, and here are just a couple of suggestions:

Diabetes

What is diabetes?

When a food containing carbohydrate is eaten, your body digests the carbohydrate into sugar (called glucose), which can then be used as energy by the cells in your body. Diabetes is a condition where your body can’t properly control the amount of glucose in your blood.

Lactose Intolerance

 

 

People with lactose intolerance experience symptoms such as diarrhoea, abdominal pain, flatulence and/or bloating after consuming lactose. Lactose intolerance is mostly a deficiency, not an absence of the enzyme lactase. These symptoms occur because the body does not fully digest lactose, a type of sugar that is naturally present in milk and other dairy foods.

Dental health

Good dental health

For good dental health, you need to look after your teeth. Dental diseases such as tooth decay and dental erosion are very common health problems in Australia, but they are largely preventable!

Osteoporosis

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones have lost calcium and other minerals, become fragile and tend to fracture more easily. In Australia, osteoporosis affects one in two females and one in three males over the age of 60.
