(HealthDay News) -- Between helping with homework, making dinner, and the nightly bedtime routine, it's difficult to find the time to pack a healthy lunch each day for your child.
The Nemours Foundation says it's worth the effort. It offers these benefits of packing your child's lunch:
- Improved control over your child's eating habits.
- Better food variety for your child.
- Cost savings from making the meals yourself, instead of paying someone else.
- Preparing your child's meals gives you both satisfaction, and is a small way to show your love.
