Children tend to prefer unhealthy food as chips, chips and sweets as chocolate or jelly baby. So how can you encourage your child to eat the healthy packed lunch?

From time to time it can be also ok to add an “unhealthy” snack as a little reward. You can also involve your girl or boy during the preparation of the packed lunch. The motivation to eat the self prepared lunch is much higher.
Of course, you should know what your child likes and what your kid does not like. The preferences change also from time to time, so just keep an eye on what is remained in the lunchbox.
A healthy packed lunch is a important but often underestimated key factor for a successful school career. The effort to prepare a healthy lunch box is not that big and the benefit and the advantages for your child are highly valuable.
