STOP THE SWAP -- A HEALTHY BAG LUNCH
  • Make sure you eat a healthy breakfast.

  • If you're preparing the lunch for your child --- include your child in the preparation of at least one item included in their lunch.

  • Aim to have the 'sweet' in your lunch be fruit or contain at least 5 grams of fiber/serving

  • Remember to start with clean hands, surfaces, fruits and vegetables.

  • Be sure lunch includes foods from the ChooseMyPlate model (fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy).

  • Provide a healthy morning or afternoon snack for the 'tween time

  • Keep hot lunch hot and cold lunch cold (use insulated containers keeping hot foods @/> 140F/73.9C and cold foods @/< 40F/4.4C) http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/newsroom/news-releases-statements-and-transcripts/news-release-archives-by-year/archive/2014/nr-082014-01

  • Don’t over pack the bag lunch to avoid leftovers and food safety issues.
