ROUND-UP THE ROUTINE
Yes, it’s January but it’s never too early to get into the swing of routine. Consider making bedtime a little earlier each night, as well as timing breakfast and lunch to fit in with the times children would eat on a normal school day. According to the Raising Children Network, daily routines help set our body clocks â€’ bedtime routines help children’s bodies ‘know’ when it’s time to sleep. This can be particularly helpful when children reach adolescence and their body clocks start to change. Furthermore, Raising Children notes that routines have health benefits, too; children in families with regular routines have fewer respiratory infections than those in routine-free homes.

The new year is a great time to look at what you eat and start planning meals weekly if you don’t already according to Caroline Guillemain-Brunne, the founder of Organise.Curate.Design. And that includes school lunches and snacks for the term ahead.
“I recommend to clients that they set aside an hour to plan each dinner, and breakfast and lunch if needed, while writing a grocery list or ordering your items online,” she says.
