If you want your children to eat healthy, know that first impressions count. If the kid opens up their lunchbox to and finds that it looks squashed or just plain boring, then they may not want to eat it. Try to keep the lunch box visually appealing, easy to open, and simple to eat. Include a little surprise, a few times a week. Be sure that your child’s nutrient needs are being met in their lunchbox. Just think natural, interesting, nutritious and variety and divide portions of vegetables, salad, fruit, meat, dairy and starchy foods like bread. Allow an occasional treat.
