Sharing the move to wellness with Chiller2Go

Life can be complicated … but one change we can easily make is a move to wellness.

For me it was a natural decision to go back to basics and keep life simple. For instance, water quenches my thirst better than anything else and so I drink lots of water all day! Fresh fruit and crunchy vegetables make an awesome sugar free natural snack and so I make sure I only have these natural healthy snacks around me to keep my blood sugar up and my concentration level at its peak.

Add a healthy lunch and a healthy dinner and voila… you have an easy well rounded eating regime.

The most difficult thing about changing your habits is getting through the first few days. Once you’re through those, you’ll wonder what the big deal was. BUT if you do slip up, don’t be too hard on yourself. Give it a serious go again and get  back on track.

My motto is KISS …. ‘keep it simple’ (silly)

Chiller2Go .. its a Life:Style decision.

Snack on Snow Peas in Spring

I’m loving Spring because Snow Peas are in season. David Harris from Harris Fran Markets says they are his pick of the week. Not only is this a ‘no waste vegetable’, they are around 35% cheaper than last week so try popping a handful of these in your Chiller2Go Fruit Suit this week for the ultimate guilt-free sweet snack.

Crunchy fresh Snow Peas are the perfect portable snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth! How’s that for a great Spring tip!

Does your school do Crunch&Sip®?

CRUNCH & SIP 1If yes, you know you have to pack a healthy fruit or vegetable snack for your child to eat each day. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut packing the same Crunch&Sip® snack day after day.

 

A Chiller2Go® Fruit Suit® variety pack is a great idea for the following reasons:

  • It will help your child to eat a rainbow of fruit and vegetables that are kept chilledand protected from bumps and bruises.
  • It will enable you to introduce new fruit or vegetables alongside familiar or more accepted ones
  • the Chiller2Go Fruit Suit is visually appealing!

TIPS:

  • Try to include two or three different kinds in each Fruit Suit, maybe one unfamiliar alongside one or two choices your child already loves.
  • Pop the frozen gel pack in the base of your Fruit Suit and try packing a combination of small whole pieces like an apple, banana, pear, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, grapes, apricots or plums.
  • This is a great way to increase the variety of fruit and veg your child eats, plus it makes your job very quick and simple.

Parents turn eco-friendly | The Courier-Mail

Did you see this great article recently in the Courier Mail?

PLASTIC wrap and disposable containers might soon be history in schools, as principals reject non-recyclables and parents turn to more eco-friendly alternatives to pack their children’s lunches.

In a growing trend, several schools have taken a stance against non-reusable wraps and require certain meals be served “nude”.

Most Catholic schools have an early morning healthy food break, often called Munch’n’Crunch or Fruit Break, where packaging and processed food is banned.

Nutrition Australia recommends parents seek lunchboxes that will keep foods separate (to avoid cross-contamination) and maintain a constant, cool temperature. They must be easy to clean to avoid a build-up of bacteria.

Haggusandstookles.com.au online retailer Donna Fingland said her research found most families replaced lunchboxes at least once a year. “Lunchboxes have to be able to stand up to kids’ wear and tear,” Ms Fingland said.

“The ability to keep food cool is important, and it has to be large enough without being too bulky. They have to be able to slide easily into a school bag, and for little fingers to open and close them.”

Chiller2go is perfect for your kids school fruit!!
