Are you packing a healthy lunch for your child?

I was reading a news article that stated parents are being called into schools for unhealthy packed lunches. Research has found that just one in sixty lunchboxes were nutritional while others contained crisps, a sweet like a chocolate biscuit or a cookie. Some lunch boxes even contained a sugary drink or a squash. While England has a provision of school lunches (free until a child is in year 2) and paid for other children. Do you know mandatory rules on nutritional quality for school dinners were introduced in 2006 in England but there is still no law that covers packed lunches? Charities are now working with parents of over 100 schools to arrange workshops on how to pack nutritional and healthy lunches for kids.
