National Pack Your Lunch Day
March 10—National Pack Your Lunch Day: 5 Benefits of Packing Your Kids’ Lunch
There are so many reasons why you should participate on March 10—National Pack Your Lunch Day. For one, it allows you to pre-plan the food you put inside your body. If you haven’t been packing your kids’ and your own lunch in the past, now is the perfect time to make it a habit.
As a working parent, you’d probably prefer to give your kids lunch money than spend more time packing their lunch. However, there’s actually something good that comes out of packing their lunch yourself. For instance, it can help you make sure that they’re eating nutritious food while they are in school.
Packing lunch can help you make healthier choices and create a healthy habit that you and your kids can stick to in the long run. Don’t let your kids eat less nutritious food choices in their school cafeteria. Find time in the morning to prepare their lunch instead.
5 Benefits of Packing Your Kids’ Lunch
There are numerous benefits of packing your kids’ lunch yourself. Here are just 5 of them:
- It can help you save money!
Packing your children’s and also your own lunch helps you avoid spending on lunch food. Did you know that in doing so, you would get to save at least $2,000 dollars a year?
- It’s healthier!
Making lunch helps you make sure that your children will be getting the proper nutrients that they need. You can fill your kids’ lunchbox with pre-measured snacks such as cereals, biscuits, nuts, or dried fruits.
- It can help create a healthy habit!
Preparing lunch together with your kids can help them adopt healthy eating habits that they can stick to as they grow older. As they help you prepare lunch, they pick up skills that can be useful in the future. Teaching your children how to properly choose the food they eat can empower them to make healthy decisions in the future.
- It can be a great way to preserve traditions!
As you and your kids prepare their lunch, it gives you a chance to talk about the past, like how your mother used to prepare your lunch as well. It’s a good chance to pass down recipes and reminisce your time in school. What’s more, you can throw in an encouraging note in your kids’ lunch boxes as well to keep them motivated throughout the day.
- Your kids can have a variety of food choices!
Packing your kids’ lunch can give them a variety of food to eat—which is especially useful if your kid is a picky eater. Unlike school cafeterias that usually have a fixed menu, you can switch things up and make your lunch ideas more appealing to your children.
Although packing your kids’ lunch is a simple thing to do, it could make all the difference in your children’s overall health and wellness.
