Packing Healthy Lunches
Because children are still growing, their need for energy (calories), nutrients and food will change over time. During growth spurts or when they are more active, children need more energy (calories) than usual. As a result, they may feel hungrier and eat more during these times. Lunches that offer foods that are power-packed with nutrients can help children get extra calories in a healthy way. Examples of nutrient -rich foods include: Raw vegetables (try serving them with yoghurt dip), whole grain muffins, cheese with whole grain crackers, milk, and fresh fruits.
