It pays to eat healthily, especially at lunchtime when the temptation is to grab a bag of crisps. However a healthy balanced and not rushed lunch-hour, with a bit of Lunchercise thrown-in is not only good for your well-being, but also enables you to cope with the rest of the day. Just remember to try and include some of your 5 a-day in your lunchbox.
Rush, rush, rush, we all know how it is to eat on the go, whether driving to meetings, on a train or simply moving from one location to another, you still need to keep lively and active, which is why a healthy balanced lunch is just so important and not to be missed under any circumstance.
We all know how hard it can be to have a proper lunchtime meal at the office; pressure of work, meetings and other calls, all make taking that break difficult. However that’s precisely what you need to do in order to be able to cope with all that the afternoon and evening may throw at you. A healthy snack, plus fruit juice or coffee is a good start and will help you take a welcome respite – so remember missing lunch is just for wimps!
For those lucky enough to be able to work from home, or even to be able to pop home for lunch, a nutritious lunchtime snack is a necessity. But just how do you resist the urge just for a quick nibble then on with whatever the day holds. Well the simple answer is just because you’re at home it doesn’t mean that you should make less of an effort; in fact the opposite is the case! A well prepared lunch, plus drinks such as coffee, will help keep you going to dinner time.
If you’re working shifts, or are on your feet all day, with demanding manual work, then a mid-day food break is essential to keep up those energy levels. Just make sure your lunchbox is healthy and well balanced with lots of soft drinks, or coffee, plus fruit.
We all want our children to be bright and alert at school, so as to be able to cram in all that essential teaching; but in order to gain maximum benefit kids lunchboxes need to be healthy and balanced, with lots of fruit, fibre and juices. Remember a healthy lunchbox is a great base to learn from.
