Healthy Lunchbox Week

Nutrition Australian Announces It’s Inagural “Healthy Lunchbox Week!”

Nutrition Australia is launching an annual event to help parents with some new and exciting tips on packing a healthy lunchbox as they start the “back to school” process. We realise that parents are busy and coming up with new ideas (that the children will eat!) can be challenging. This year we have teamed up with Grains & Legumes Nutrition Council to provide you with an array of content that helps you get that lunchbox ship shape!


Our kids eat a third of their daily intake at school, so it’s important we make it count. We have 3 golden rules which make it as easy as 1-2-3! and they are:

  1. Make it healthy
  2. Keep it convenient, and
  3. Make it enjoyable


Check out our content here on the page, or our social media posts for some inspiration and ideas for fun lunches as your kids launch back into the school year.


We also have a webinar on healthy lunchbox ideas which you can attend and given this is our first year we have made it free to attend!

GLNC is the independent authority on the nutrition and health benefits of grains and legumes. They are a not-for-profit, registered charity and their mission is to promote grains and legumes nutrition as part of a balanced diet through evidence-based information cultivating good health.

They have a great campaign called “Bring back the Sandwich”. Children between 3 and 8 years should east 30-40g per day of whole grains and this guideline is met with just 2 slices of whole grain bread!
