Welcome to a school bag packed with educational games and activities for use in schools, at recreation centres, in the playground or at home. The activities are primarily developed for children aged 10–14 and aim to promote healthy habits.
What makes a tasty packed lunch? What effect do healthy and unhealthy foods have on health, well-being and learning? This activity encourages discussion of healthy eating habits at school.
Show Me Your Packed Lunch takes its starting point in a small exhibition of three packed lunches: The Good, the Evil, and the Gruesome.
The teacher and the children discuss the different types of packed lunch – what is healthy or unhealthy, and why? What do the children’s own packed lunches look like, and what do they like to have in their lunchboxes? The discussion could draw on the WHO’s dietary recommendations which you can find in the teaching guide.
