Cancer Council NSW Healthy Lunch Box website for families

The task of packing healthy school lunch your kids will love is now easier with Cancer Council NSW’s new Healthy Lunch Box website. We know that 93% of children don’t eat enough vegetables and 22% are overweight.

The website includes recipes and tips on how to include more fruit and vegetables in the family’s diet and is complete with an interactive lunch box builder to involve the kids, at home, or on the move with a smartphone or tablet.

The website has been launched as part of Cancer Council NSW’s Eat It To Beat It program which runs free sessions and workshops for parents of primary aged school children, helping them to understand why fruit and vegetables are so important.
