Health Tip: Pack a Healthy Lunch for Your Child

Posted September 11, 2018

(HealthDay News) -- Children need nutritious lunches to help them stay healthier, concentrate in school and play sports.

The FDA suggests how to pack a healthier lunch:
  • Plan your meals for the entire week. Fill your child's lunchbox with foods that contribute to healthy growth and weight maintenance.
  • Encourage your child to help pack lunch. This will help teach lifelong habits for building healthy and balanced meals.
  • Focus on the basic four food groups: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, dairy and proteins.
  • Look for inspiration on healthy food websites.
  • Make sure portions are appropriate for your child.
  • Read nutritional labels to help you select the healthiest options.
