This information is already on the website but I thought it would be a good idea to create a printable version of the Healthy Lunch Box Ideas on the website. If you want to start the new term by providing a lunch that contains the best mix of foods to keep your children energised and focused throughout the day, why not print it out and bring it along when you next shop for food?
A packed lunch for kids should contain some energy to help their brains and muscles work during the afternoon as well as some good nutrition to help keep them healthy. Not an easy job when you factor in: government and school pressure for lunchboxes to be healthy, the science degree often required to decipher food labels, a child’s likes and dislikes, the need for it to be easy and quick to eat and above all enjoyable so your child will eat it.

The reusable and eco-friendly bags from Envirosax are just getting more and more popular in the family. Perfect for keeping all the gear together. My daughter puts her bookbag and lunchbag in hers every morning and I throw in all the stuff I may need during the day in mine. We also borrow each others for variety (or to better match my outfit). They are also great for weekend outings, shopping trips and sleep-overs.

More and more workers choose to take their own lunch for work and as the continuing financial downturn is forcing many of us to tighten our belts there are money to be saved. According to a recent article you can spend as much on one takeaway meal as it would cost to take your own for a week.
Making a lunch for work doesn’t have to take long. So when there are no suitable left-overs in the fridge and I’m running out of time, which I do most mornings, I would quickly make a sandwich and pour a serving of my favourite yoghurt into a leak proof container, add a fruit or vegetable snack and Done!
