Ask Kim My six-year-old doesn't like what I pack for her school lunches. Do you have some ideas that are healthy and tasty? Most muesli bars are high in sugar and fat. Try including healthier homemade slices filled with grain and fruit or muffins and cakes with sultanas, bananas and carrots. It's important to keep kids hy- drated. Steer clear of sugary juice poppers or soft drinks and opt for water instead. Kids need two serves of fruit a day, so try to include fresh or packaged fruit to ensure they get their intake. Kids also need calcium to help growing bones. Choose low-fat diary products such as yoghurt, milk, cheese and cheese spreads. Vary what's on offer as kids get bored with the same old food! Keep them interested by cutting their sandwiches into different shapes using a cookie cutter. Kim Coverdale is food editor at Super Food Ideas.

For terms and conditions see www.taste.com.au/goodtaste Peasant Italian with a touch of class NAME: Haberfield Post WHERE: 60 Dalhousie St, Haberfield OPEN: For dinner seven nights and lunch Friday- Sunday. Phone 9716 4344 PROFILE: Xavier Toby Tradition meets modern at Haberfield Post. A CHEF from the Sardegna province in Italy produces traditional meals at Haberfield Post. There are pizza and pasta options, along with creative meat and seafood combinations. The specials board is changed every two weeks, to ensure even repeat customers can constantly be trying something new. ''The specials are all written in Italian to give the waiters a chance to talk to the customers. We enjoy explaining the specials to people,'' owner Tony Toscano said. Haberfield Post has only been open for seven weeks. Mr Toscano and his children operated a successful restaurant around the corner for seven years. He spent more than four months renovating the old post office, which had been vacant for more than three years. The high ceilings and bright, spacious interior make for a relaxed dining experience. ''We have restored the front section to the original, and there will be outdoor dining once it gets warmer,'' Mr Toscano said. The kitchen is open so people can see the food being prepared. For lunch we were treated to bruschetta topped with a porcini mushroom and a root vegetable mix. Italians peasants used to eat the meal since the ingredients were easy to come by in some regions. It is now a delicacy and was delicious. For a main meal we shared pan- cooked rabbit, a tender and moist white meat that was also tasty. Then we had a large fillet of barramundi that had been cooked with porcini mushrooms. ''The porcini mushrooms go very well with many types of seafood,'' Mr Toscano said. The restaurant is BYO and can cater for functions for up to 120 people. Enrol now for July!
