PACKING A LUNCH THAT SUPPORTS LEARNING

A school lunch should give children the energy and nutrients they need to get them through an active afternoon.  When planning healthy lunches keep these tips in mind:

  • Include at least one serving from each food group from Canada‘s Food Guide
  • Rather than buying pre-made lunch kits, make your own healthy “lunch kit” with divided containers and small ‘bite-sized” crackers, cheese cubes, left over chicken chunks, veggie sticks or fruit slices
  • Get your kids to eat more veggies…send cucumber coins, zucchini sticks and pepper strips with dip
  • Don’t drink your fruit…send water instead. Save the 100% fruit juice for home
