A well balanced, nutritious lunchbox should be portioned such that it comprises half vegetables or salad; one quarter grain foods, preferably wholegrain or low GI carbohydrates, one quarter lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts, or seeds, as well as a side of fruit and a calcium rich snack.

Don’t forget to pack plenty of water too and always keep lunchboxes cool with an insulated bag and ice brick!

Healthy lunchbox:

  • 1 kiwi fruit chopped
  • 2 rice cakes with vegemite and ricotta, cut into triangles
  • 1 serve of yoghurt with 1 teaspoon of muesli and sprinkled with pumpkin seeds
  • 1 grainy salad and chicken roll
  • Looks both nutritious and delicious, thanks.
