More About National Pack your Lunch Day

People have been bringing their lunch to work with them forever. There has always been a need to take time out of the day to recharge energy with a bite to eat. Through the years this has changed in appearance as convenience has given way to planning and preparation. It is known that those quick options are not very healthy. Making the choice to eat out at lunchtime (as well as other times too!) has helped to add to the waist size of adults and children. Pack Your Lunch Day helps to remind us of the many advantages of making your own lunch. Have you ever taken time to look at the ingredients of any of the convenience foods that are so easy to grab and go? The typical lunch box options include snacks that we buy in shops. A small pack of chips, a handful of cookies. These are the most common items found in children’s lunch boxes at school, but also in some adults’ lunch boxes too. It’s not common for adults to pack a lunch, though. A lot of people tend to buy something on the go. It is a nightmare of preservatives and chemicals most times! If you take the time to plan your own lunches you will know exactly what is in the food you are eating. Also, you can control portion sizes. It can be surprising what a difference it can make in your day. No more sluggishness in the afternoon as you break away from fatty and sugary foods and make healthier choices!
