At Podar Prep, known as one of the best preschools, we firmly believe in the saying, “Health is Wealth!” Hence, we have developed an approach to nutrition that goes beyond just eating. Our snack time is not just a break for munching, but an opportunity to instil values, promote healthy habits, and teach essential life skills to our young learners.
Gratitude for Food: Each snack-time session begins with a prayer that is about simply thanking God for the food we eat. This small act teaches our children to appreciate and value the food they consume, instilling in them a sense of gratitude. It’s a small but significant step towards creating compassionate and mindful individuals.
Promoting Healthy Eating: Snack time is an excellent opportunity for us to introduce our students to the importance of healthy eating. We ensure our snacks menu comprises nutritious, balanced, and varied options that make eating healthy an enjoyable experience. This early introduction to nutrition aids in fostering lifelong healthy habits.
Encouraging Communication and Sharing: At Podar Prep, snack time also doubles as a social activity. It provides an informal setting where children can interact, share, and build relationships with their peers. It also encourages them to articulate their thoughts, likes, and dislikes about different foods, thus enhancing their communication skills.
Time Management: Finally, snack time at Podar Prep teaches children the crucial skill of time management. They learn to complete their meals within a certain time frame, instilling in them the ability to manage their time effectively.
At Podar Prep, we understand that food plays a pivotal role in a child’s growth and development. We don’t just feed our students; we equip them with a positive relationship with food that promotes overall well-being. The lessons they learn at our snack times nurture not just their bodies, but also their minds, making them well-rounded individuals ready to take on the world.
