There are many benefits in packing a lunch. One being you will know exactly what your child is eating, and can ensure that the lunch is filled with things like fiber and protein that will give them the fuel that they need to get through the school day. Another big benefit is the education that they can get by taking part in packing the lunch. It can start with a visit to a farmer’s market to get the vegetables or fruit that may enter the lunchbox. It is never too early for kids to learn where their food comes from and which foods are “always” foods versus “sometimes” foods.
