While cooked school meals are getting healthier, and have to conform to government guidelines, children taking packed lunches to school may not be getting the same nutritional benefits. Growing kids need plenty of starchy foods to fill them up and give them energy. Nutritious meals packed with fibre, protein, carbohydrate and vitamins will also help your child's growing bones and give them a healthy dose of brain power for the afternoon ahead. These along with fruit and/or vegetables should form the main part of your child's lunch. For more information about healthy packed lunches, visit the Children's Food Trust website.
