The packed lunches shown in this resource all provide the amount of energy (calories) needed by children of this age at a main meal and, if a range of packed lunches are eaten over a period of a week or more, they will provide the important nutrients that young children need to develop and grow.
It may be of particular use to early years settings who may want to provide guidance to families and child carers on how to provide a nutritious, cost-effective and practical packed lunch for children of that age.
