There are a lot of new things they will experience, and one of the biggest changes they face will be eating at school. Eating at school is a completely different experience to eating at home or preschool.

Starting school is a wonderful time, and one that your child will love once they have their eating practices under control. Summer holidays are a perfect time to rehearse with some picnics, so get out there and enjoy the sunshine!
