About Healthy Lunchbox Week
Healthy Lunchbox Week is an initiative of Nutrition Australia that aims to inspire Australian families to create healthy and enjoyable lunchboxes.
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?
Occurring at the start of Term 1, when school is back and the daily preparation of lunchbox making has set in, Healthy Lunchbox Week supports schools in sharing relevant lunchbox messaging across the whole school community.
Do you think you have Australia’s healthiest lunchbox? Nutrition Australia have joined forces with Life Education in the search for Australia’s healthiest lunchbox. Upload your photo on Life Education website and you'll be in the running to WIN one of three prize packs consisting of a $250 Woolworths e-Gift card and a Healthy Harold lunch pack. Submissions close Thursday 11th February.
Learn how to provide relevant and tactful lunchbox messaging that recognises family food values and practices. You will also discover a range of trusty go-to resources to stay on top of suitable lunchbox advice for children, families and carers.
