Low GI, brown or whole-wheat bread is a much better choice of bread as your child will be fuller for longer as well as it containing more fibre and less refined flour. Protein like eggs & nuts are also beneficial to your child’s lunchbox as protein assists with maintaining a balanced sugar level. Your fruits or dried fruit are essential for energy and giving your child the boost they need not only on the sports field but in the classroom too.
