eco-friendly lunchboxes
2 min read
Yes! Lunchboxes can absolutely be eco-friendly, and it is important that they are.

Over one-third (37%) of the food kids eat in a day is eaten while at school, so including a range of nutritious whole foods will help to maximise your child’s nutrition. And providing an eco-friendly lunchbox can help your child to develop healthy eating behaviours that will stay with them for life.


There are four key components to packing an eco-friendly lunchbox.

1.         Include more wholefoods

2.        Add more plants

3.        Pack seasonal and local fruits and vegetables

4.        Minimise food packaging
