SWAP IT Everyday Lunchbox Planner
The ‘SWAP IT Everyday Lunchbox Planner’ is designed to make it easier for you to pack a healthy lunchbox full of everyday foods. By planning ahead, you can make sure your child has a healthy lunchbox to help them concentrate, learn and play throughout the day.
When children are involved in planning their lunchbox they are more likely to eat what’s packed. Download a free printable version of our lunchbox planner to try with your child today. Why not laminate a copy and write straight onto it with a whiteboard marker?
