Our children’s immunity starts with their lunchboxes
With kids back in school, parents have prepped everything on their checklist – from stationary supplies to the uniform and even the lunchbox. The real question is: Have you thought about what ingredients you need in the kitchen to prep a perfectly healthy lunch?
Now, more than ever, ensuring our children’s immune system is strong has become our key priority. A healthy and balanced diet full of vitamins, minerals, fibers and whole grains will help jumpstart their metabolism and give them a dose of energy for the full day while boosting their immunity.
Choose a healthy, easy and nutritious lunch that they are excited to get to. Ensure that their meal is 100 per cent organic and absolutely free from any nasties.
With Earth Goods products, you can guarantee a lunchbox that is free from GMOs, preservatives, chemicals and added sugar. Every product from the Earth Goods range is non-processed and full of the good ?bres, vitamins and minerals.
It also helps that healthy lunches are usually easy to prepare, looks fun and tastes great. Remember, sunshine and exercise are equally important in building your child’s immunity.
Here are five healthy swaps to include in your child’s lunchbox:
- Choose whole or sliced fruits instead of fruit juices that are high in added sugars
- Make the box rich in whole grains. Swap those processed grains seen in breads, sugary cereals and pizza for whole grains like oats, brown rice and quinoa.
- The more veggies, the better. Helps keep the box colourful. Swap potato fries or potato for carrots and tomatoes.
- Focus on healthy proteins. Eggs are a great choice and kids love them. Opt for beans over red meats like processed sausages and bacon. When using oils, use trans fat-free oils and limit the use of butter where possible.
- Make water cool again. Choose water over any drink. It’s always sugar-free and easy to finish. If your kids dislike water, infuse it with fruits.
