Is packing your lunch healthier?

By packing your lunch ahead of time, you can pack adequate – but not out-of-control – portions to ensure you don’t overeat (or overspend). And throw in a healthy snack too while you’re at it – apples and peanut butter is a great option – to avoid those afternoon trips to the vending machine. More variety.

What should lunch include?

Suggestions include:
  • Fresh fruit.
  • Crunchy vegetables.
  • A meat or protein food such as slices of lean meat, hardboiled egg, peanut butter or nut paste*
  • Dairy food such as a cheese stick or slice, grated cheese, milk or yoghurt.
  • Starchy food such as bread, a roll, pita or flat bread, fruit bread or crackers.
  • Water.

What is a normal lunch time?

Lunch should be about four to five hours after breakfast. For example, if you ate breakfast at 7 am, eat lunch between 11 am and noon. If it is not possible for you to eat lunch until 2 pm on a particular day, then plan a snack in between those two meals.
