Children consume a third of their daily nutrients while at school, therefore its important to pack them a balanced lunch.
Variety is not only important for your child’s growth and development, it’s vital for maintaining energy levels.
A balanced lunchbox should contain a variety of nutritious foods from each of the five food groups –grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy and protein.
Variety ensures children obtain a range of important nutrients, essential for growth and development, and keeps them alert throughout the school day.
