An Easy Guide To Kid's Snack

Being a first time parent sending her child to school, one of the things that still confuses me is the list of food to prepare for my child. At first, I thought that pre- packed fruit juices are fine. But early today, during the school orientation, I found out that it is not actually advisable for kids to have them.
The school gave us a list of preferred food and dishes for the child to bring to school and to be eaten at home.
Let me share some of them with you...
