Children may choose to bring lunch from home. Lunch boxes and flasks should be clearly marked with the child’s name and class. Parents should aim for a packed lunch to be healthy in order to provide children with a balanced diet. A balanced diet is about eating lots of different foods to get the nutrients you need, and it’s sometimes hard to get that variety into children’s lunchboxes.
