Donegal Nutritionist Sorcha McElchar from Sorchas Healthy Living shares her tips to creating lunches your children will actually eat!
School is back in session, and school lunches are back on the menu.  Many schools have healthy eating policies that encourage more things like fruit and vegetables, while limiting foods higher is sugar and saturated fats, but are they working?
Let’s be honest.  We do have a problem when it comes to childhood obesity, and diet does play a massive role in it, but we also have a cost-of-living crisis.  Many people are struggling to simple feed their kids.  However, there are always ways to make more nutritious choices even on a tight budget.
Another thing is…I kind of disagree about having a healthy eating policy in schools, unless the kids are educated on why eating certain foods are more beneficial than others when it comes to health.  It needs to be done at their level (telling 5-year-old carrots are a great source of vitamin A which helps promote healthy eyesight means nothing but telling them it gives them superhero eyesight might work!)

Also labelling foods as good and bad at such a young, in my opinion isn’t great either.  All food is food.
Now for a few tips to make nutritious lunches that your kids will enjoy,
Hopefully these tips help, and you can check out my Easy Packed Lunches & Quick And Easy Snack Idea video.
