It’s always hard knowing what to put in your child’s lunchbox.  Munch and Move an initiative of NSW Health have formulated this poster to help in the understanding of what makes a healthy lunchbox.  It is best to add a variety of foods from each food group – fruit, vegetables, dairy, wholegrains and lean meat and alternatives.

Remember always – make water your drink, pack icebricks to keep food cool (not necessary for us as we at Jacaranda put lunches into the fridge) – use a thermos to keep food warm.

And, of course, use a sustainable lunchbox which will mean that you have cut down on as much packaging as possible and recycle or reuse your waste.
