It’s time to start thinking about sending our kids back to school and creating sustainable routines for the new season. Our Libre Leading Light Leah Goard has some great words of wisdom to enjoy these last lovely days with family and simple ways to help the young souls in your house on their journey back to school.
Inspiring healthy habits for our family and ourselves includes nutritious food and drink and the age old… ‘what to pack for lunch’. For both you and the kids an economical and healthy beverage solution can be:
- Infused water(berries, fresh mint and herbs)
You can send them with a cold brew of herbal teas for refreshment and then when the cooler weather comes they can enjoy a warm-up tea on the way to school and for lunch and breaks! Children love having tea for lunch just like mom and dad. The delicious fruit based herbal teas are a perfect healthy alternative to sugary fruit juices or soda’s. Many teas are as delicious cold as hot.
Try some out with your family in the last days of summer – green and white teas overnight steeping in the fridge are perfect.
Your child will love having tea moments at school in their Libre Tea glass or thermos. Their friends will be quite curious about what they are drinking.
Tea tempers the spirit and harmonizes the mind, dispels lassitude and relieves fatigue, awakens thought and prevents drowsiness.

Tea is a natural source of fluoride, which strengthens teeth. It inhibits the growth of the plaque bacteria which causes gum disease and cavities.
