For our Loveable Lunchboxes campaign, we asked parents to share their little one's lunchboxes with nutrition professionals. Here, nutritionist Paula Hallam looks inside Keira's lunchbox and offers her insights.

What's in Keira's lunchbox?

Keira is eight years old. Her lunchbox includes a brown pitta with tuna and eight tomatoes. She also has some houmous with cucumber and carrot sticks and, as a sweet treat, raspberries and dark chocolate.

What does the expert suggest?

Nutritionist Paula Hallam gives Keira's lunchbox a four out of five, "It's a great lunchbox!"

"Possible improvements could be to add a dairy source (such as plain yoghurt) to the raspberries and to use salmon instead of tuna to increase omega 3 fats!"
