VEG's Dad here
It's a great week in Texas Tech. I am enjoying the chat and debate on how our school food may influence our choices later in life. Also on our differing nutritional needs when older.
So before we're back in term time and back in primary schools I thought a week of the food we give our kids before they go to school would be fascinating. We have received many lovely emails from Mums and Dads offering to guest blog so here's your chance. Please send an email with your post, a picture just of the meal, and rate it like VEG. For this week only it's ok for the parents to write! It can be breakfast, dinner or tea. If you'd like to send your email in a foreign language I'll post that with a translation (please include) as we did for Wales. I'd really like to have 3 meals a day for next week and travel as far as we can across the globe.
One of the reasons I'd like to see what we give our youngsters is because we will be visiting a Mary's Meal under 6 feeding centre in Malawi. Mary's Meals offers these children two meals a day as 'because their young age makes them more vulnerable to the effects of malnutrition'. It costs just 6p for a Mary's Meal, that's £10.70 a year, so please make a donation and we'll show you the difference you are making when we visit in October.
Looking forward to your contributions. I wonder where the preschool tour will kick off? VEG's geography skills will be tested!
