4 nutrition tips for kids
Albany gives you 4 ways to improve your kids nutrition.

TIP 1: Practice what you preach

You want to arm your children with strong immunity, resistant bones, and powerful minds so that they can go on to tackle life’s many challenges, you will need to teach them proper eating habits from a young age. In order to do that, you will need to lead by example and practice what you preach. So next time you’re tempted to pop by the drive through, try and remember that nothing is as quick, easy, delicious and nutritious as a home-made Albany Superior fresh sandwich. Turn that car around and head on home.

TIP 2: Make mealtime an Albany Fresh fun time!

Don’t just hand your kids a sandwich! Try to get them actively involved in the preparation, and make it an environment where they can explore their creativity. Lay all the fillings out for them to choose, and place them in groups so they can start to associate which foods provide similar nutrients to others. For example: The breads provide the carbohydrates; the meats, eggs and beans provide the protein, while the salads and vegetables provide the vitamins and minerals, and a sprinkle of olive oil or a dollop of margarine provide extra flavour as well as the essential fats children need.

TIP 3: Choose the right breads

Not only is Albany Superior super fresh, it offers the widest variety too. The variety ensures you can find the perfect slice to suit your kids, and the freshness keeps them coming back for more! Most parents want to offer their kids the goodness of brown bread, and most kids want the taste of white bread. And Albany Superior is the only slice that can offer the Best of Both! Most kids don’t enjoy the crunch of wholegrain breads either; they prefer a smoother texture. But Albany Superior is the only slice to offer Smooth Wholegrain bread! And now these varieties are also available as buns. So keep your kids happy, and give yourself peace of mind; knowing that you are doing the best you can for them.

TIP 4: Vary your fillings

If you offer your kids the same fillings time and time again, and there is even one important nutrient missing, then you run the risk of malnutrition. So by offering them a variety of foods, you will ensure they don’t miss out on any of the important nutrients that help them grow.
