Recap on Lesson 4

Now you know how regularly you should eat: breakfast, lunch and an evening meal – perhaps with a couple of snacks in between – and skipping breakfast is definitely not a good idea!

You need each meal to have a balance and variety of foods. A healthy lunch box needs to include lots of fruit and veg, plenty of starchy food like bread or pasta, some dairy food and a portion of food from the Meat, fish, eggs, beans group like chicken or tuna. It also needs to include a drink.


This is your chance to design a lunchbox. Use the lunchbox checklist to help.
