WHETHER YOU COOK OR BUY YOUR KID’S LUNCH, ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Fruits and vegetables are like hitting
the jackpot when it comes to nutrition.
They make your plate more colorful and they’re packed with vitamins and fiber.
2) WHAT ARE THE FACTS BEHIND FAT?
Some of the best low-fat foods are fresh or dried fruits,
vegetables, and skim and low-fat milk.
“Grains” include breads, cereals, rice, and pasta.
A double order of French fries would not make for a balanced lunch.
Why don’t you try to mix some grains, some fruits, some vegetables, some meat or protein foods
and last but not least, some dairy foods such as milk and cheese?
Many schools make salty snacks, candy, and soda available in the cafeteria or in vending machines.
It’s OK to have these foods once in a while, but they shouldn’t be on your lunch menu.
Do you eat the same lunch every day?
Even the hamburger becomes tedious if it is served everyday, five times a day!!
It’s not just about what you eat — drinks count, too!
Milk has been a favorite lunchtime drink for a long time.
If you don’t like milk, choose water or a fresh juice.
