The benefits of a warm lunch

Nutrition is the foundation of life! Healthy eating is essential to a child's health, growth and development.

Healthy food
Healthy nutrition for a child means they are less likely to develop diseases. It also means that they feel better, look better and enjoy life more. At Devi Kids, we believe it is important for children to learn the importance of healthy food. We provide delicious and nutritious food with a wonderful seasonal menu. Everything at Devi Kids is freshly cooked on location by our cook, is homemade and tastes great!

Benefits

At Devi Kids the children get a fresh and warm lunch every day. We do this for a number of reasons:

  1. More nutrients and vitamins
    A warm lunch contains many more nutrients and vitamins than a sandwich. As a result, the children are satiated for longer and have more energy during the day.

  1. Focused eating
    Children are more interested in eating during the day than in the evening, because they are often tired.

  2. Taste development
    Getting children used to different tastes and structures at a young age has a positive influence on their taste development and eating behavior. 

  1. Stimulating
    If children see other children eating, they will probably start eating better. Because the children are sitting at the table with other children of the same age, it makes them curious and stimulates them to taste and try. When a child sees another eating, it makes them curious and unconsciously stimulates them to taste and try.
