Kids Learning At Home? Don’t Let Them Study on An Empty Stomach!

Snacktime breaks are important, as well as physical activity.

Because of today's unusual circumstances, many parents are now opting to provide their kids with alternative learning options at home. These arrangements can be difficult, though, because at home, it's up to parents to set and uphold a routine for learning, which includes studying schedules, incentives, and motivation methods.

For younger kids, one crucial and often-neglected part of that routine is snack time. The same way students have recess and lunch breaks at school, kids learning at home should be given time to relax, play, and eat. It's an important part of the learning process.

At school, kids run around and play with other kids during their recess and lunch breaks. This creates an opportunity for social interaction and aerobic exercise, which are both crucial to their development and health. Also, this type of aerobic physical activity, in the right amounts, is believed to have a substantial positive impact on learning.

Apart from that is a more obvious reason why snack time breaks are important: the snacks themselves.

Without a regular schedule, children may forget to eat — nalilipasan ng gutom. Parents must be mindful of this, as hunger can negatively affect a child's ability to learn. That's why it's important to incorporate snack time in a child's day-to-day learning schedule.

It helps to give your kids a reason to look forward to these breaks. Provide them with delicious snacks, such as Jack ‘n Jill Snacktime Favorites. Having yummy snacks like these at home can help you make your kids' study time more engaging and fun.

Jack 'n Jill has, for decades, made some of kids' snack time favorites: Magic Junior, Wafrets, Cream-O, Presto, Knots, Dewberry, and Quake Overload. Kids may not need baon right now, but they should still enjoy snack time even when they're not at school.

Consider getting them the snacks they love, so you won't have to worry so much about their focus during study time. You can find these familiar favorites at your local grocery or supermarket:
