It can be tricky packing a lunch that gives kids the balanced nutrition they need. But don’t worry – we’ll help you work out what foods to include and how much of each, so it’ll be easy to load their lunchboxes with healthy goodness.
With this handy guide to food groups, servings and suggested foods, packing the perfect lunchbox is a breeze.
We don’t add nuts, or use equipment that has handled nuts when we make our Chewy Yoghurt or Muesli Bars, making them perfect for the lunchbox.
However, because we can’t guarantee all the ingredients haven’t come into contact with nuts before they reach us, our Muesli Bars aren’t suitable for those with nut allergies.
Source of whole grains – UNCLE TOBYS Bars are made up of at least 50% whole grains.
Our muesli bars are made with no artificial colours or flavours – UNCLE TOBYS Muesli Bars are made with absolutely no artificial colours or flavours, guaranteed.
Aussie kids have days packed with sports, activities, learning and fun, so they need a range of nutritious, tasty foods to keep them going. Keep these tips in mind when you’re packing their lunches to ensure they’ve got the right foods from each of the five food groups.
Schools often have food restrictions like ‘no nuts’ policies, so UNCLE TOBYS Chewy Muesli Bars and Yoghurt Muesli Bars are a good snack option because they don’t have added nuts. Check what’s allowed before you pack a lunch.
Kids today are more likely to eat on the go, so try to give them lots of easy-to-eat options.
The more colourful the lunch, the more balanced it is likely to be, so give a variety of fruits, veggies and whole grains.
Just because there’s an extra compartment in the lunchbox doesn’t mean you have to fill it!
Too much sweet stuff isn’t good, but just because a food is savoury doesn’t necessarily mean it’s healthier. Try to get a good mix of both and go for snacks with higher Health Star Ratings.
The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
