Children are encouraged to bring a healthy packed lunch… A healthy packed lunch is a balanced meal, providing a variety of nutrients, to be found in four main groups
Base each meal on a starchy food, such a bread, potato, rice, pasta. Starchy foods give energy, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Wholegrain varieties are best for fibre, which is vital for a healthy digestive system.
MEAT & ALTERNATIVES
Add some protein such as meat, fish, eggs, beans or pulses. Protein foods build muscles and provide minerals. Meat products such as sausage rolls, sausages and chipolatas, pies and pastries should not be included more than once a fortnight.
MILK & DAIRY PRODUCTS
Include a dairy product or dairy alternative, such as fromage frais. These foods provide calcium necessary for strong bones and teeth, as well as providing protein and vitamins.
FRUIT & VEGETABLES
Don’t forget to include fruit and vegetables. You can use fresh, tinned or fried. Fruit and vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, necessary for the body to function properly and keep you strong and healthy. All packed lunches should include at least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetable or salad.
