While schools are closed, M&S is accepting the £15 food vouchers issued as part of the government’s free school meals scheme in England.
All the products on the meal planner will be highlighted in-store with special “I’m on the shopping list” signs to offer a helping hand to parents as they shop.
Laura explains, “Eating a healthy, balanced diet helps keep children healthy, gives them energy, and helps them to concentrate on school work and to be alert. Although we’re facing challenging times, it’s worth trying to embed a few healthy habits where you can – and hopefully these tips and recipe ideas will help you do that. If you’re at home more, smaller habits repeated each day can really stick. But the main thing is not to be too hard on yourself. The 80/20 rule is a good one to keep in mind – if you can encourage children to eat a balanced diet around 80% of the time, you’re on to a winner!”
