Packing Healthy Lunchboxes


Providing children with a variety of healthy foods and drinks is important for healthy growth and development. The first years of a child's life may be the best opportunity to encourage healthy eating habits. Research suggests when children have enjoyable experiences with healthy foods early in life, this encourages the life-long preference for these foods.
