How to Ensure Your Children's Lunches Provide them with the Necessary Nutrients

Choose My Plate .gov

As we all know, children need to eat a healthy and balanced meal in order to succeed in school and achieve their academic goals. Food is the fuel that powers the brain, so a healthy lunch is necessary to keep them energized and alert during the school day.

The USDA’s MyPlate Guidelines remind us that a balanced lunch should include five food groups: vegetables, fruits, grains, protein and milk. Although these five components are present in the school lunch, they’re sometimes not present in packed lunches. A recent research study from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in Boston shows that only 27% of the packed lunches met at least three of the five National School Lunch Program standards and that only 28% of the lunches included water as a beverage, 24% included sugar-sweetened drinks and 3% included milk.

As your partners in school nutrition, we would like to emphasize the importance of including all five components of a meal in your children’s lunches. That way you can be certain they are obtaining all the necessary nutrients for their development!
