About 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
Why 19 - 25 January?
We know each state starts their school year at a different time. Healthy Lunchbox Week dates are based on the week before the first state goes back to school.
