About Healthy Lunchbox Week
Healthy Lunchbox Week is a Nutrition Australia initiative that aims to inspire parents and carers across Australia to create healthy lunchboxes their children will enjoy.
Did you know children consume around 30% of their daily food intake at school? Most of this comes from the contents of their lunchbox. What children eat during their day at school plays a crucial role in their learning and development.
Healthy Lunchbox Week helps families prepare healthy lunchboxes by:
inspiring healthy lunchbox ideas and recipes
ensuring a healthy lunchbox balance across core food groups
awareness of lunchbox food hygiene and safety
Why 7 - 13 February?
Whilst our children are settling into a new school year, schools across the country can get involved and help share healthy lunchbox messages with their students and families.
What's happening during the week?
This year, Healthy Lunchbox Week has something for everyone. Families can get on board with our lunchbox photo competition and teachers can pick up some tips on healthy lunchbox messaging in our free webinar.
