Minus 5 Monday

Minus 5 Monday

Nationwide Sugar Reduction

Here at Minus 5 we think every child has the ability to absorb so much more information from simply being well nourished & healthy. Too many children are arriving at school after consuming breakfasts high in sugar, then a lunch that isn’t much better.

We want to change that.

By educating every child on the risks of consuming too much sugar, schools have the ability to shape the wellbeing of a nation, reducing obesity, disease & behavioural issues not to mention the extraordinary drain on the public health system & parental discipline these conditions impose.

What we propose - The first Monday of every month is promoted as ‘Minus 5 Monday’. Encouraging all children to bring to school a lunch consisting of either Minus 5 products or products/ingredients that contain little or no sugar.

Here you will find inspiration lunchbox ideas from Nutritionist, Stacey Kemeys (www.mykidslickthebowl.com) and prepared by Geraldine Nicolls (Little Kiwi Lunchbox) including a list of products meeting the Minus 5 Criteria.

And, stay tuned for more Minus 5 Monday’s and more great lunch ideas every month.
