Build A Healthy Lunchbox!

Packing a healthy lunchbox does not need to be time-consuming and challenging. Pick a food item from each of the sections below to build your ideal, balanced lunchbox!

Top tips for a healthy lunchbox:

- Cover all food groups (starch, protein, fat, fruit & vegetables).

- Choose whole-grains such as whole-wheat crackers, whole-wheat bread, whole-wheat wraps, whole wheat pitas).

- Choose lean proteins such as chicken, tuna, lean biltong, eggs, chickpeas, lentils.

- Choose a healthy fat. Check the label to ensure that the saturated fat content is LESS than 1.5 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams.

- Pack in a fruit or two. They are full of nutrients and antioxidants.

- Pack in as many veggies as you want! The more colours, the better!

- Always take a bottle of water.
