Links are provided below to several web sites providing information on how to prepare a healthy packed lunch.

One survey has shown that only 1% of the 1,300 packed lunches analysed would have met the nutritional standards set for school meals. The survey also showed that children were likely to eat the less healthy items like confectionery and leave the healthy items such as fruit.

Patricia Mucavele, research and nutrition manager at the School Food Trust, which offers its own advice on packed lunches, said, "School lunches are now the most nutritious choice for children and young people. Packed lunches aren't as nutritious as school meals - they are typically higher in saturated fat, sugar and salt, and often contain foods that can't be provided in schools, such as sweets and salted snacks.
