A balanced lunch is so important for little ones, helping to keep growing bodies in check and energised, and little minds focused. Easier said than done we know, but here are 3 can-do everyday kids' lunch tips from our Nutritionist Melissa Fine.
Aim for 4-5 different colours from fruit and veg. Think carrot sticks, cucumber crudites, cherry tomatoes, pitted olives, blueberries, grapes...whatever they like!
Protein helps to keep blood sugar and energy levels steady.
Some great options are Medjool dates, a Tinkernicks Almond & Coconut Bar - a wayyy healthier alternative to a fruit strap/rollup, or a Food For Health's Dark Chocolate Mini Bite - dark choc dusted chickpeas, but the kids will just think these are choccie balls.
