Teacher resources

Take your class on a Healthy Lunchbox Week adventure!

Each adventure includes five pit stops to help the class complete their lunchbox journey by the end of the week.

The below Healthy Lunchbox Week teacher resources have been developed by Accredited Practising Dietitians from Nutrition Australia ACT with advice from early childhood and primary school teachers. The intention of the adventure activities is for children to have positive exposure and engagement with healthy food and drink that could be applied to their own lunchboxes. It is not intended for teachers to judge or rate children’s lunchboxes nor for children to compare their own lunchbox contents among their peers.

Teachers are encouraged to adapt these activities to suit their students and classes. 

Each classroom adventure kit contains teacher notes, activity templates, pictorial guides, adventure planning map and class certificate of completion. To access these free resources simply complete the registration form below.
