Did you know that children will consume more than a third of their daily food intake while at school? Packing them healthy lunches is critical for their everyday health and it will also help them to concentrate and learn.
1. Main item - sandwich/wrap/roll, pasta with vegetables, soup, frittata or sushi.
2. Fruit or vegetable snack - whole fruit, cut up veggie sticks, canned fruit in natural juice, a small salad
3. Second snack - yoghurt, grainy crackers with cheese, plain popcorn, a slice of raisin bread, a wholemeal fruit muffin, a boiled egg or a can of tuna.
4. Something to drink - a bottle of tap water is best, and plain UHT milk can be great too.
Mix and match from the following lunchbox combinations to provide healthy lunches your child will be excited to eat.
** While nuts are a nutritious inclusion, it is recommended that you consult your school regarding anaphylactic or nut allergy policies.
