With our busy schedules, preparing and packing a healthy lunchbox can sometimes be a difficult task.
However, when packing a lunchbox for your child, you should remember that you are providing them with a supply of food that will be nutritious enough to take them through the day with the energy they need to function, both body and mind.
Here are 4 important items you should include in your child’s lunchbox.
- Main lunch item – examples include a sandwich, roll or wrap based on whole meal grains or a salad.
- Nutritious snack – such as veggie sticks and hummus, yoghurt or boiled egg.
- Fresh fruit – whatever is in season.
- Drink – always include a water bottle.
Remembering the four items above will give your child the best opportunities to focus, learn and flourish in their new classroom environment in 2017.
