Cancer Council NSW has launched a brand-new website that will make the task of preparing a healthy school lunch for the kids a whole lot easier.

The Healthy Lunch Box website (healthylunchbox.com.au) includes simple, tasty recipes and ideas for lunches, healthy snacks and family meals – and it features an interactive lunch-box builder that enables parents and their kids to plan a healthy lunch box at home, or on the move with their smartphone or tablet.

With only seven per cent of children eating enough vegetables and 22 per cent of children overweight or obese, adding fruit and vegetables to the lunch box every day is a simple way to ensure children get the benefits of eating a healthy and balanced diet.
