[WATCH] The yummy mummy’s guide to surviving the first week back at school

On the #WeekendBreakfast with Phemelo Motene, author of Eat-Ting Anna Trapido talks about how to deal with back to school mayhem, and the dynamics of packing the perfect lunch.

Trapido jokingly admits that lunchboxes are actually trade goods. She adds that if you look at your child’s lunch, the wrappers that return are often not what was packed.

My little boy, he would walk around the shops pointing out what his friend likes.

Trapido says that there’s food parents pack to please teachers. She adds that it’s important to ensure that your child is fed sufficiently.

I have a plan for those mothers that want to survive the first month at school.

The answer to every parent’s lunchbox woes is the Leopard Deli. Trapido adds that the Leopard houses one of the most iconic, food figures in Johannesburg. Long before it was fashionable, Andrea Burgener has always been active in animal welfare, and organic ingredients says Trapido.

If Andrea Burgener says it’s organic, it really is. If she says it’ gluten-free, it really is.

Trapido adds that the Leopard makes readymade meals that are child friendly. She adds that Andrea’s food is comforting, wholesome, delicious and readymade.

Trapido says that parents who are attempting to go vegan in January can try the Leopard’s ‘vegan by accident’ section. She adds that the food is vegan, but it tastes so good that meat eaters can eat it without feeling deprived.

Trapido adds that all aspects of the menu and food is witty. She says that the mac and cheese has a photo of Sylvester Stallone before he got famous, and the piri piri Mozambican style stuffed aubergines with cashews have Samora Machel on the label.
