Helping Kindergarteners adjust to School Lunch

As many new Kindergarten mom’s plan for the fall with their kids first experience in school.  Here is a tip from a listener to help you child at lunch.

Practice eating “school lunch” with your kiddo. Make sure they can open everything you send with them. Talk about not eating off of the table in the lunchroom!!! Set a timer for 15 minutes and talk about how they may not finish eating and that is ok.

Practice packing everything back up and talk about what is trash and what should come back home in their lunch box. Kindergarten lunch is a big adjustment and your child’s teacher will be super appreciative if you have prepared them for the experience!
