It may be useful to invite your son or daughter food shopping and talk them through how to organise meals for a week in advance. Teaching them how to plan ahead will avoid any empty cupboards and skipped breakfasts.
Getting enough rest
Students may find themselves getting carried away with all of the exciting things happening at the start of university. It’s important that your son or daughter gets enough rest before any early starts – they’ll be thankful for it the next morning.
Learning to cook
Your child may be moving away from home for the first time, so they should know how to cook a few healthy recipes confidently. Pasta or rice dishes are a good place to start.
It’s a good idea to ensure your son or daughter is confident reading washing symbols and the various settings on the washing machine. A lot of universities will have on-campus launderettes with step-by-step instructions.
