What does the expert suggest?

Nutritionist Resource member, Natasha Alonzi, takes a deeper look into Jessica's lunchbox.

"There are some great foods in this lunchbox!

Depending on the eggs, this is a good source of protein and possible omega 3. The fruit and vegetables are good sources of nutrients and great way to keep children hydrated."

What swaps could be made?

  • Add grated carrots for extra veg and colour, spread some flaxseed or olive oil on bread for added essential fatty acid content.
  • Are the fruit bears needed? Perhaps swap for nuts and strawberries to top it up or add houmous to dip cucumber and tomatoes into. Savoury food can be a treat as well!
  • If nuts are allowed, these are a good source of vitamins, minerals, protein and fats – if not, try a seed mix or an oatcake with tahini.
