Healthy Lunchbox Week

Healthy Lunchbox Week is a Nutrition Australia initiative that aims to inspire parents and carers across Australia to create healthy lunchboxes their children will enjoy.

Did you know children consume around 30% of their daily food intake at school? Most of this comes from the contents of their lunchbox. What children eat during their day at school plays a crucial role in their learning and development.

Healthy Lunchbox Week helps families prepare healthy lunchboxes by:

  • inspiring healthy lunchbox ideas and recipes 
  • ensuring a healthy lunchbox balance across core food groups
  • awareness of lunchbox food hygiene and safety.

Healthy Lunchbox Week occurs at the start of Term 1 to help get kids and families set up for a healthy year of lunchboxes.
