you should never let your children go to school in the morning without eating breakfast. Breakfast plays an important role in child development because they need a lot of energy to perform the activity for the whole day. As parents ,you should feed your children in the morning before taking them to go to schools because you do not know what they eat at school. If you cannot feed them on time, you can give them lunch box to bring to school and write down a note to stick on that lunch box to remind them to eat.

Drink a lot of water:

glasses

while children are busy playing with their friends , they never think of drinking water although they are thirsty. So as parents you should remind your children to drink enough water and tell them why they should drink a lot of water to let them know the benefits of drinking water. You can buy a bottle of water to put water for your children when they go to school because children at young age they do not know how to buy things at school and sometimes they do not know who should they tell when they are thirsty.

Parents should create a fix schedule for breakfast, lunch and dinner time for their children. Children do not interested when they should eat or what they eat because they do not think it is important for them so your job as parents you should remember the time that you should feed your children or if they are old enough to eat by themselves you should tell them the exact time they should eat. If your children are busy playing games or watching T.V and they do not want to eat meal, do not hit them or shout to them but instead you should talk with them in a gentle way and make rules for them to follow. If they break the rules of eating , then you can punish by not allowing them to play games or not giving them money.
