How do you pack a lunchbox with goodness ?
Each day at school children need:
- Lunch (Main)
- A healthy snack (Mini)
- Extra fruit or vegies (Munch)
Pack your child's lunchbox with healthy food from the five food groups. This includes wholegrains, protein (such as lean meat, egg, fish or hummus), reduced-fat dairy, vegetables and fruits. Don't forget to pack water.
Pack a lunch with some grains, protein and vegies. This can include a sandwich, wrap, sushi, pasta, curry, falafel or any dinner leftovers. Where needed, add an ice pack to keep food safe.
Pack a healthy snack such as cheese and grainy crackers, hard boiled eggs, homemade muffins, plain yoghurt, popcorn, tinned tuna, baked beans or fruit.
If you think your child needs more, pack some extra fruits and vegetables for them to enjoy. Pick seasonal to save money and encourage variety.
Always pack water for your child.
