Lunch is just as important as breakfast for kids a school. Eating good lunch not only gives kids the energy boost they need to get through the rest of the school day but it also helps them concentrate in the class room.
It is importance to remember when packing a lunch that it should not only be kid friendly but should also follow the My plate principles to ensure that your child is eating a well-balanced meal.
Don’t forget food safety. Most lunchboxes are not placed in a refrigerator and so it is important to pack foods that will not go bad or use insulated lunchboxes that include an ice pack.
With a little thought and prep work a child’s lunchbox can be both fun and nutritious.
