At Cheapside Pre-school we are always working towards teaching the children about healthy eating and teaching them the importance of taking care of our bodies with what we eat and keeping active.
We would like to share this information with parents too so that we can all work together to make healthier choices at our mealtimes.
Please see attached some information from Eat Better Start Better about what should be included when putting together a healthy lunchbox for your child.
According to the British nutrition foundation a balanced packed lunch should include:
* 1 portion of starchy food - ie bread, pasta, rice or similar carbohydrate
* 1 portion of fruit AND 1 portion of veg
* 1 portion of dairy
* 1 portion of protein
