I delivered a healthy packed lunch talk at a preschool recently and thought it would be useful to share the content more widely.
The first half of the talk focused on the 4 food groups that need to be included in a healthy packed lunch, namely:
- Fat (animal and plant)
- Vitamins & minerals (calcium in most lunches pleases)
Please see the grid below (the exact one I presented) which details each of the food groups, why our children need them and some example foods from each group.
