Sometimes school holidays can bring added expectations and pressure, so new inspiration for keeping kids entertained can be a welcome gift. Here are some healthy ideas to keep your bubble busy, as well as support a healthy stress response and immune wellbeing.

1.Have a picnic

Get everyone involved in choosing and prepping the food together and spread a comfy blanket on the lounge floor or on the lawn. Sharing a meal together can stimulate oxytocin, our ‘cuddle hormone’, which increases feelings of closeness -great for family bonding. Oxytocin also quells cortisol, our stress hormone, so sharing food helps keep our stress response balanced.

2.Get creative in the kitchen

Get little hands involved with making delicious, healthy recipes. Whether you’re looking for healthy treats, snacks, or ideas for main meals, our  Healthy Recipes are full of inspiration.

3.Get active outside

Exercise is fantastic for the immune system. Researchers found that immune cells are better at finding and booting out invaders, straight after exercise. Make the most of a clear spring day to get outdoors – it has a bonus of time spent in nature, studies show it supports our stress response, which in turn, boosts our  immune health.

4.Start fermenting at home

It’s rewarding to make your own cheese, yoghurt, and kombucha from scratch. AND it keeps the little ones entertained with a science experiment in the kitchen - a win-win!
