Welcome to WELLconnectedKIDS, the home of Oscar’s Lunchbox. On this website you will find resources that are designed to help children to fulfil their potential and live happy, healthy lives.
By helping children to attune their senses, we can deepen their connection to many aspects of their lives. For when we focus on our feelings we make a connection that compels us to look after, either ourselves, our environment or those around us. The deeper understanding they can achieve will enable them to better navigate their busy lives, and will enrich their life experiences. This principle is featured in Oscar’s Lunchbox, a new book by Pam Houssenloge. In this book children are encouraged to think about how different kinds of foods affect how their bodies feel.
Oscar’s Lunchbox is a high-quality, inspiring and educational book for children dealing with food intolerances. There is also a beautiful underlying message in the book for children and adults alike, reminding us to be aware of clever marketing and flavour enhancers when making food choices. By stopping to sense the messages from his body, Oscar is making a connection between what he eats and how he feels. If he wants to feel great, he learns that he has to act upon these messages. The wisdom contained in Oscar’s Lunchbox can be used as a fundamental tool for developing life-long healthy eating habits.
Oscar’s Lunchbox is receiving rave reviews from parents, teachers, health care workers and especially children across the world. Here’s a review from well known Australian author Tania McCartney.
