One third of a child’s diet is influenced by what they eat at school, 70% of school children make unhealthy food choices when buying from the tuck shop as fizzy drinks, chips, and sweets are the most commonly bought snacks. Almost one third of South African children have fizzy and sweetened drinks as often as they have fruit and vegetables.
Children who eat a healthy and balanced diet have shown better performance and improved behaviour at school. A lack of physical activity, increased sedentary time and poor eating habits have contributed to the recent rise in childhood obesity and chronic diseases as large portions sizes, kilojoule dense foods and sugary drinks are common in children’s diets today.
