Help to keep your child’s lunch box healthy and eco-friendly: is helping parents pack a nutritionally balanced lunch

As kids head back to school, many parents are looking for food options for lunchboxes that will provide the needed fibre, vitamins and minerals to get kids through the day.

My Green Lunch Box, created by Melbourne nutritionist and naturopath, Lindy Cook is helping parents and schools tackle the healthy eating battle many parents go through with their kids each day.

A mother of two, Lindy knows the dilemma most parents face when trying to provide tasty but healthy lunch box options, whilst also embracing the ‘nude food’ policies being introduced into many Australian schools. 

“I want people to eat well – I love inspiring those around me with simple recipes and nutrition tips – and caring for our environment is also something that is incredibly important to me,” Lindy says.

“My Green Lunch Box is playing its part in getting schools, parents and kids on board the environmentally friendly nude food movement, whilst the simple fundraising option for schools provides a healthy and eco-friendly alternative to the traditional chocolate drives and sausage sizzles.”

An online store with a ‘green’ focus for all things food-on-the-go, My Green Lunch Box is also providing schools with a generous fundraising program, with $2 from every item purchased donated to the school to assist with better education for the next generation.

The My Green Lunch Box website and Facebook page provides a wide range of eco-friendly, funky and design-led lunch boxes, food and drink wraps and bottles, along with many nutritional tips and recipes for tasty lunchbox goodies such as mini frittatas, granola bars, falafel wraps, fruit and nut slice, chicken and corn wraps, and potato corn and tuna patties, just to name a few.
