10 Top Tips for Healthy Lunchboxes
- Make Sandwiches with thickly sliced bread or choose roll or mini pitta breads.
- Go for wholegrain or wholemeal where you can.
- Cut down on the amount of butter, margarine or mayonnaise you use.
- Pick low-fat sandwich fillings such as lean meats including ham, turkey, fish (e.g. tuna) cottage cheese, Edam, mozzarella, or sliced banana.
- As well as fresh fruit such as apples and bananas, include a handful of grapes, chopped fresh fruit salad or melon pieces, or a small box of raisins.
- Rather than drinks that are very high in sugar, such as fizzy colas or ‘juice drinks’ go for unsweetened fruit juice, water, flavoured water, flavoured milk and yoghurt drinks.
- Cut down on crisps, which are high in fat and choose plain popcorn, breadsticks, and dried mixed fruit instead.
- Replace cakes, chocolates and biscuits with scones, currant buns and fruit bread.
- Don’t forget to include some vegetables, such as cherry tomatoes, sticks of carrot, cucumber, celery and peppers.
- Remember to put some salad in sandwiches. Once a week, why not try a colourful mixed salad instead of a sandwich.
Try to vary what you put into lunch-boxes (variety is very important) and get your child involved in making their lunch-time meals.
