When planning your child’s school lunch, it can be easy to revert to the norm – you’re running late, you know they generally eat it. But where’s the variety, and are you sure it’s healthy enough?
Healthy lunches and snacks help children concentrate, learn and play throughout the day. A child’s diet should include fruit and vegetables, milk products, meat or alternatives, wholegrains and water, every day. You can include all this in your child’s lunch box, and still make it edible, interesting and desirable – all it takes is a little planning.
